The shooting at Oakbrook Center happened in 2021, on the day before Christmas Eve.

Holiday cheer soon turned into chaos when, according to police, a total of 12 shots were fired that night. Just before 6 p.m., police said two men got into an argument near Ann Taylor and Auntie Anne’s – not far from Nordstrom – and began shooting at each other.

Three innocent female bystanders were shot, and one other woman was injured running away. One of the shooters was also shot; he was hit four times. Everyone survived.

During the investigation, stores went on lockdown, and many shoppers were stuck taking cover for several hours.
