NEW BERLIN — New Berlin residents received an emergency alert Friday evening, urging them to shelter in place as police look for "possibly armed subjects."

The New Berlin Police Department asks if you see anything suspicious to call 911.

The department says the suspects were in a pursuit from Milwaukee County.

Dozens of police vehicles could be seen patrolling the New Berlin area late Friday night.

It remains unclear if it is connected to the Mayfair Mall shooting, that left eight people injured Friday afternoon.

Also Friday night, all southbound lanes on I-894 from Oklahoma Avenue were closed due to a shots fired investigation, according to the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office.
