Multiple people were injured in a shooting at the Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, on Friday, the local mayor said.

None of the victims' injuries appear to be life-threatening and they are being taken to the hospital, Wauwatosa Mayor Dennis McBride told ABC News.

About 75 officers have descended on the scene in Wauwatosa, about 6 miles outside Milwaukee. The FBI's Milwaukee office also said it was responding to assist local law enforcement personnel.

"Police are actively investigating an incident at Mayfair Mall," Wauwatosa police said in a tweet. "The mall is currently closed."

"We are disheartened and angered that our guests and tenants were subject to this violent incident today," Brookfield Properties, Mayfair's Mall property management company, said in a statement. "We are thankful for our partners at the Wauwatosa Police Department and we are cooperating with them as their investigation develops."

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office has not been called to the mall.
