A 57 year old Illinois security guard was fatally shot Wednesday during a robbery at River Oaks Center shopping mall.
The incident happened a little after 2 p.m. when officers received a call regarding multiple shots being fired inside the mall.
Upon arrival they located 57 year old Norman Thomas suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries.
Officers also found an 81 year old man with an injury to his hand. He was treated by first responders at the scene.
Surveillance footage from the mall shows the robbers shooting outside the jewelry store, then going into the store and breaking the cases before stealing an unknown amount of merchandise.
The robbers then fled the scene before officers could arrive.
Authorities searched the mall but it was clear. At this time no suspect(s) have been arrested.
This investigation is ongoing.
