WAUWATOSA, Wis. (AP) - Police are filling in more details about arrests made in connection with a shooting at a Wisconsin mall last week.

Wauwatosa officers announced Saturday officers had arrested a 15-year-old boy they believe was the shooter and several more people.

Sgt. Abby Pavlik said in an email to media outlets Monday that the boy was arrested during a traffic stop in Milwaukee and the suspected weapon in the mall shooting was recovered from the vehicle.

A passenger in the vehicle was also arrested.

A third person believed to be involved in the incident was also arrested but Pavlik didn’t include any details.

Investigators don’t know if the shooting was gang-related but are working with prosecutors on potential charges.
