CHICAGO — Police in Chicago say two people were shot to death in an apparent murder-suicide at the Old Navy clothing store in the heart of the city’s Loop retail corridor.
Chicago Police Officer spokesman John Mirabelli says details are sketchy about Friday’s shootings but that it appears the deaths were part of a domestic dispute.
After the shooting, crowds of pedestrians gathered on the sidewalk outside the shuttered store, which is just blocks from Chicago’s City Hall. The store’s metal security gates had been lowered and yellow police tape blocked off the scene.
Louise Callagy, a spokeswoman for Old Navy’s owner Gap Inc., says the 3-story location has been shut while the retailer works with investigators.
