One injured in Wisconsin mall shooting on busy shopping day.

Gunfire erupted during a dispute inside a large Wisconsin mall Saturday, leaving one man wounded in the leg and sending thousands of people scrambling for cover on one of the busiest shopping days before Christmas. Within three or four seconds a gun went off, he said. “Myself and a lot of other people just went into whatever store was nearest, and they did a real good job of putting the gate down and getting us into the back, where we waited until police showed up,” Flood said. “There were a lot of kids actually around … and they were in tears and their parents were trying to get them to calm down, but they were crying the entire time,” he said. Police were questioning the wounded man, numerous witnesses and would look at surveillance video to determine who was involved in the dispute, DeSpain said.

The incident comes at a time of heightened concern about security following a shooting at a holiday banquet on Dec. 2 in San Bernardino, Calif., that left 14 people dead.
