MAYWOOD (CBS) — A man was killed and a woman wounded in a shooting inside a grocery store Tuesday in west suburban Maywood.
The shooting happened around 11 a.m. in the 1100 block of Madison Street.
37-year-old Anthony Morris, of Maywood, died a short time later at Loyola University Medical Center. The woman is still being treated at the hospital.
Maywood police say the shooter fled the area in a vehicle, but investigators do not have a description. A video camera at a nearby business captured the suspect running away.
Police also do not know if this was targeted incident. They don’t have motive for the shooting or know what kind of gun was used.
Witnesses say the woman who was shot ran into a preschool across the street with her son who is a student at the school, and the school was put on lockdown for hours.
“She [the woman who was shot] had a six-year-old with her; they told us to stay inside,” said Tanya Butler, whose granddaughter was at the school.
“It’s scary, real scary. Bullets don’t have names on them. Anybody could have been shot.”
Police do not believe there is a threat to the community, but plan to increase patrols in the area throughout Tuesday night.
