Tinley Park, Illinois
An armed assailant restrains and shoots Lane Bryant employees and customers, killing 5 and wounding another
The motive behind the attack seems to be a robbery gone wrong. A man, whose description was given to police by the unnamed survivor, forced the women in the store into a back room before tying them up and shooting them. The victims killed ranged from 22 to 42 years old. The store manager was able to call 9-1-1 on her cellphone before being discovered. The suspect has yet to be identified.
A portion of the 9-1-1 recording can be heard here: https://youtu.be/BgzxqIb2TQY
