    Another mall shooting in IL: Merged

    FOXNews.com - Report: 4 Killed in Illinois Mall Shooting; Suspect on the Loose - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News

    Feb. 2: Police investigate the scene of a shooting in front of the Lane Bryant store at the a shopping center in Tinley Park, Ill.
    TINLEY PARK, Ill. "Multiple" victims were found Saturday at a clothing store in a strip mall but there was no sign of the shooter, authorities said. They did not immediately confirm a report that four people had been killed.

    Police Sgt. T.J. Grady said officers responding to a 911 call about a shooting at the Brookside Marketplace at about 10:45 a.m. found the shooting victims inside a Lane Bryant store in this Chicago suburb.

    Grady refused to give other details at a news conference or take questions, but said the attacker had apparently left the area in the suburbs southwest of downtown Chicago.

    "No motive has been established," Grady said. "Every store was immediately canvassed and a search by air, too, has given us every indication that the offender has left the scene."

    Will County Coroner Patrick O'Neil had told the Chicago Tribune earlier that police reported four deaths.

    Grady said police were looking for a black man about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing 230 to 260 pounds, dressed in a black waist-length winter coat, a black cap and black jeans.

    Police allowed some shoppers into parts of the strip mall Saturday afternoon, but they cordoned off the Lane Bryant store.

    Tracy Caccavella said she was shopping at a Pet Smart store across the parking lot late Saturday morning when police entered the pet supply store.

    "Six police entered the store with their hands on their gun holsters," Caccavella said.

    The officers left after searching the Pet Smart store, she said.

    There was no immediate response to calls seeking comment from Lane Bryant Brand headquarters.

    Fitting, I suppose, that a big guy dressed in a waist-length winter coat (and an apparent wedgie problem) should should up a Lane Bryant store.

    Four dead. No popped elastic band is worth that.

    Truly sad to live in a defenseless society. Illinois and Wisconin really need to change. Of course there will always be some shootings when the victim doesn't have a chance to respond, but I like to have at least a chance.

    Yep. I feel sorry for the folks who live in Illinois and other no-CCW places. Here in Missouri, if we carry into a recommended gun-free zone, trouble only arises if we are asked to leave and refuse. I suppose in Illinois one could be put in jail for carrying in a mall.

    I'm so glad Missouri has enacted a bunch of pro-carry laws recently. Just hope they don't get rescinded upon an administration change in our state capitol.

    Was this a random shooting? Seems like something else was going on here.

    Just goes to show that you never know where some type of violence will occur.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

    This is not good. Prayers sent.

    It is very bothersome that people do not have the right to defend themselves. The press should be holding the politician's feet to the fire, asking why the people did not have a chance for survival. Even better would be a candidate that would champion self-protection rights.

    What a shame, waste of 5 lives. The familys should sue King Daley, his steadfast refusal to see the right of the citizens of Chicago and the whole state of Illinois to defend themselves is a big part of the problem.
