Authorities arrested the 15-year-old boy on Saturday evening but did not announce any charges. The Friday afternoon shooting at a suburban Milwaukee mall injured seven adults and one teenager. Wauwatosa Police Chief Barry Weber said the incident happened during a dispute with two groups.

Who was the suspect? Authorities did not release his name but identified him as a Milwaukee resident. Police confirmed they made several other arrests and did not confirm the teenager's role in the incident. In February at the same mall, a city police officer shot and killed a 17-year-old male, leading to protests.
