OAK BROOK, Ill. (AP) — Police say a shooting occurred at a mall full of Christmas shoppers in suburban Chicago Thursday, Dec. 23, injuring four people.

The incident at Oakbrook Center in Oak Brook began with two people involved in a shootout in a corridor.

Police Chief James Kruger says the injuries were not life-threatening.

Kruger says three people who were shot might have been hit by ricocheting bullets.

One person was in custody, and police were looking for another suspect.

The outdoor mall is a major shopping destination about 15 miles west of Chicago.

Shoppers who were interviewed as they were gradually released say they took cover in stores and dressing rooms.

CBS 58/Telemundo Wisconsin's Alexis Dominguez was at the mall when it occurred, and fortunately was unharmed. 

She's provided updates as the investigation unfolds, sharing video of a SWAT team clearing out stores and people being evacuated.
