A woman who suffered a gunshot shot outside of Walmart, 1300 Desplaines Ave., late on Aug. 29 is expected to survive, Forest Park police said in a press release issued Monday morning.
Around 11:10 p.m., shortly after the store’s closing time, police received multiple 911 calls reporting shots fired outside Walmart. Officers reported locating a number of shell casings at the scene as well as a “bullet-riddled” vehicle in a ditch east of the store.
Police reported finding a woman, a passenger in the vehicle, who had been shot one time. The driver of that vehicle, reportedly a man, apparently had fled the scene before police arrived. It is unknown whether the driver had been wounded.
There is limited information at this time, but it appears the shots may have been fired from another vehicle, which police described as a white Chevy Impala or Malibu with tinted windows.
Sunday’s incident is the second shooting outside of the business in the past month. No one was apparently injured in the first, which happened on the afternoon of Aug. 4 in the parking lot north of the store.
Anyone with information on the Aug. 29 shooting is asked to contact Forest Park Police at 708-366-2425 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
