3 shot in a suburban Chicago mall. A person is in custody as a suspect recovers from gunshot wounds




Another man with a gun is still late, Oak Brook Police Chief James Kruger said at a news conference Thursday. A man in his 30s who police consider “one of the offenders from this case” has also been shot.

“Our understanding is that two suspects involved in the shooting were known to each other and shot each other, and that two other suspects were wounded by ricochet gunfire and other victims were fired at each other,” Krüger said in a news conference. .

“It was crazy,” Oakbrook Center shopper Camila Reyes said Zen. “Unfortunately, there was a lot of arrows. The arrows were a lot

“We were all terrified,” another witness, Diane Sprague, told the news outlet.

The injured were taken to hospitals and include two women in their 40s, a woman in twenty-six and the suspect, police said. Another injured his ankle trying to flee the scene.

The vehicle is attached to the suspect and is still under investigation, Kruger said.

The shooting sends a man on lockdown during holiday shopping.

“We’ve all tried to keep it quiet and secure – stop being out of the window. We closed the doors, we stayed in the back door,” Sprague told WLS. “There were infants, old men, and all believers were wronged.”

About 100 police officers from area agencies, including the entire Oak Brook Police Department, cleared the man, Kruger said. Working in the cellars, the shopkeepers and workers were asked to flee the place, as SWAT and tactical units scouted the site.

The mall is expected to reopen Friday morning.
