RIVERSIDE, Ill. — North Riverside Park Mall closed for the rest of Friday after a man was shot inside the mall.
At around 3:15 p.m., police responded to the mall on the report of shots fired. The shooting happened on the upper-level common area and it was domestic-related, police said.
Witnesses told WGN a group of young men were arguing in front of the Jimmy Jazz store when she heard gunshots.
“It was crazy, people started ducking and running and I just ran to the back,” said Vanessa Crawford.
The man suffered two non life-threatening gunshot wounds. Police detained two men, one of whom is believed to be the shooter, in a traffic stop near the intersection of Harlem Avenue and 16th Street in Berwyn.
This June, the mall was put on lockdown after shots were fired inside. After Friday’s shooting, there have now been three shootings at the mall in the last four months.
