Chicago Woman Shot By Boyfriend While Working Nordstrom’s Makeup Counter
According to NYDailyNews reports:
A gunman stormed into a Chicago Nordstrom packed with Black Friday shoppers, shot his girlfriend who was working at the makeup counter and then turned the gun on himself, police said.
The 22-year-old woman was taken to a hospital in critical condition, and the gunman died inside the Michigan Avenue store, CBS Chicago reported.
Police have not identified either the shooter or the victim.
The man walked into the high end department store around 8:30 p.m. Friday, just 30 minutes before it was set to close, police said. He made his way through the crowds of holiday shoppers and went to the second-floor cosmetic counter.
He found his girlfriend — a seasonal employee at the store — and fired one shot at her before he shot himself in the head, police said.
Court records showed the man filed a restraining order against the woman for stalking, but a judge denied the request in April, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Nordstrom will not open Saturday and will remain closed until further notice.
Fortunately there were no other injuries. What a crazy world we live in. Can you believe this?
