1 shot, 2 flee in Oak Brook jewelry store robbery

An attempted jewelry store holdup in Oak Brook left one suspect shot and two others on the run.

Three men walked into the C.D. Peacock jewelry store in the Oakbrook Center mall Sunday afternoon.

One had a sledgehammer, and he smashed a display case before a store security guard shot him.

The other men ran away as shoppers watched in horror; the two men stole a mall employee’s black Jeep Liberty and drove away.

No shoppers were injured, but several stores briefly locked their doors with shoppers inside until the incident was over.
