Police Shoot Suspect in IL After Shoplifters Try to Run

Posted: Updated:

Police in Romeoville, Illinois, say a shoplifting incident left two people injured, including a police officer, and a total of three men arrested.

Mark Turvey, who's chief of police for Romeoville, just outside Chicago, says his officers responded to a call about two men shoplifting inside a Kohl's department store.

He says a third man was waiting in a getaway car in the parking lot.
 
When officers responded, Chief Turvey says one of the suspects started running away and was able to get inside the getaway car, while struggling with an officer.
 
Chief Turvey says the officer was dragged and suffered a shoulder injury. Chief Turvey says the officer's injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.

Police say a backup officer fired two to three shots at the driver, hitting him in the shoulder area.
  
Officers say they do not know the condition of the injured suspect, but say that he is expected to survive.

Both the injured officer and the injured suspect were taken to the hospital.

Police say the men were stealing clothes. They say the third suspect was arrested inside the store.

Chief Turvey says another officer was taken to the hospital to be checked out, which is a standard procedure after he was involved in the shooting, but he does not appear to have suffered injuries.
