CHICAGO (CBS) — A 30-year-old man was in police custody in northwest suburban Norridge, in connection with a shooting that left two people wounded Thursday in the parking garage of the Harlem-Irving Plaza shopping mall, but police still had some loose ends to tie up.
Norridge Police Chief Jim Jobe said those wounded are cousins, a 36-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman. The gunman was said to have been the woman’s boyfriend.
Jobe said the incident began Thursday morning as an argument on the West Side of Chicago; apparently, the boyfriend took the woman’s four- and six-year-old children shopping at the mall, using her car, without her permission.
The facts surrounding the earlier argument are unclear — including how the woman, her cousin, and other family members found him shortly after 1 p.m. in the parking garage.
