Police Seek Person Of Interest In Fatal Shooting At Walgreens; Gunman Claimed To Be Cop


NO WORD ON WHAT CAMERAS POLICE USED TO CATCH CRUZ. HE WAS CHARGED WITH AGGRAVATED DISCHARGE OF A FIREARM. INVESTIGATORS IDENTIFY A PERSON OF INTEREST AFTER A WOMAN IS SHOT AND KILLED INSIDE A NORTHWEST WALGREENS. HE CLAIMED TO BE A CHICAGO POLICE OFFICER BUT CPD TELLS US HE’S NOT. ADD REENA IS LIVE OUTSIDE OF THE WALGREENS TO TELL US ABOUT THE INVESTIGATION. HELLO. GOOD MORNING, MIKE AND ERIN. CHICAGO POLICE JUST TOLD US THAT THEY HAVE IDENTIFIED A PERSON OF INTEREST IN CONNECTION WITH THIS SHOOTING, SOMEONE THEY WANT TO QUESTION BUT RIGHT NOW NO ONE IN CUSTODY. AND ACCORDING TO POLICE CALLS THAT CAME IN LAST NIGHT, WITNESSES SAY THE SHOOTER INSIDE THE STORE TOLD THEM HE WAS A CHICAGO POLICE OFFICER. BUT A DEPARTMENT SPOKESPERSON SAYS HE IS NOT A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER OR AGENT. A CREW CLEANING THE CRIME SCENE INSIDE THIS WALGREENS ON FULLERTON AND CISNERO. IT WAS REALLY SHOCKING BECAUSE I HEARD ABOUT IT AT WORK AND I’M LIKE I COME HERE ALL THE TIME. PEOPLE SHOWED UP TO SHOP THIS MORNING BUT THE STORE WAS STILL CLOSED TEN HOURS AFTER A SHOOTING INSIDE. A PERSON SHOT 28 AND 17th INSIDE THE WALGREENS. A WOMAN SHOT AND KILLED AROUND 11:30 WHEN POLICE SAY THE WOMAN WAS SHOPLIFTING INSIDE THE STORE AND THE MANAGER CONFRONTED HER ABOUT IT. THEN FOR SOME REASON, ANOTHER MAN IN THE STORE JUMPED INTO THE CONVERSATION. POLICE SAY THAT QUICKLY ESCALATED TO A PHYSICAL ALTERCATION AND THE MAN PULLED OUT A GUN AND SHOT THE WOMAN IN THE HEAD. A SECURITY GUARD IN THE WALGREENS SHOT A FEMALE SHOPLIFTER. POLICE RADIO CALLS CAME IN. THEY SAID THEY DO NOT HAVE A SECURITY GUARD THERE. PLUS WITNESSES SAY HE DID TELL THEM THAT HE WAS A CHICAGO POLICE OFFICER AND THEN HE FIRED. CHICAGO POLICE SAY THE MAN IS NOT A POLICE OFFICER. HE FLED THE SCENE IN A RED HOODIE DRIVING A BLACK OR BLUE FORD SUV. HIS FACE AND VEHICLE CAUGHT ON THESE CAMERAS AT THE STORE. IT SEEMS LIKE A LOT OF THIS STUFF IN THIS AREA HAS BEEN WITH GANG VIOLENCE AND YOU KNOW WEAPONS AND GUN VIOLENCE. IT’S HORRIBLE. THE WOMAN WHO WAS SHOT IN THE STORE WAS PRONOUNCED DEAD OVERNIGHT AT MOUNT SINAI HOSPITAL. SHE’S IN HER 30S.
