DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin, Oak Brook Chief of Police James Kruger and DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick are expected to hold a press conference Wednesday to discuss the charges following a hearing, according to a release.

Gunfire erupted during a shootout at the mall Thursday amid the last-minute holiday shopping rush.

An officer called for help about 5:45 p.m. that day after two men began shooting at each other near the mall’s Ann Taylor store, Oak Brook police Chief James Kruger said.

Several suspects ran in to a nearby Nordstrom store after the shots were fired in an effort to get away, Kruger said.

Four people were struck by the gunfire, including one of the suspected shooters who was taken to a hospital and placed in custody, according to officials. None of the injuries were believed to be life-threatening.

Police said two people were arrested at the mall that night, but they continued searching for a third suspect in the days following.

Anyone who saw the shooting, or attempted to alert police officers or security guards about the suspects as they fled, is asked to email authorities at Police-TipLine@oak-brook.org.

The mall reopened Friday morning with what the police described as a “heavy police presence.”
