Five Killed in Shooting at Suburban Strip Mall

A gunman opened fire inside a clothing store in a strip mall in suburban Chicago on Saturday, killing five women before fleeing the scene.

Tinley Park Police Sgt. T.J. Grady said police responded to a call at the Lane Bryant store around 10:45 a.m. He declined to say whether the victims were customers or employees. He gave no ages and said authorities are still trying to reach the victims' families.

"No motive has been established," Grady said. "Every store was immediately canvassed and a search by air, too, has given us every indication that the offender has left the scene."

Police are looking for a black man about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing 230 to 260 pounds. They said he was wearing a black waist-length winter coat, a black cap and black jeans.

Authorities believe there was only one shooter.
