One panicked witness named Nikko Danz told The Chicago Tribune, “To see all the panic, it was definitely frightening. You hear about this stuff on the news all the time, and wouldn’t expect it to come so close to where you live. It’s a messed up situation.”

Jonathan Galingan said, “All of a sudden, we just see people bolting across our store, bolting into our store. They were yelling, “active shooter!” We all panicked and were in shock, so we started escorting people toward our backdoor.”

Galingan’s colleague then had to lead shoppers out the back exit. He said, “I was thinking of the children that were coming in, being yanked by their parents.”

The suspect active shooter at the Chicago mall has not yet been identified.
