NORTH AURORA, Ill. — Authorities in North Aurora are investigating after two men were shot Tuesday evening in the parking lot of a grocery store.

Authorities responded to Woodman’s, located in the 100 block of Hansen Boulevard, on the report of a shooting in the parking lot.

Police found two men shot. One was transported in critical condition and the other was transported in fair condition.

Authorities are looking for the shooting suspect nearby and believe the incident started as a drug deal that escalated. Shortly after detectives searched a nearby apartment complex, police took three people in for questioning.

The store remained open throughout the incident. No suspect information has been released at this time.

“I just got done grocery shopping and I saw a bunch of cops over here,” shopper David Rodriguez said. “There’s so many drugs – and with drugs there’s a lot of violence, too.”
