CHICAGO (AP) — Police in Chicago say they have a person of interest in the fatal shooting of a woman inside a Walgreens store.

The woman was killed Wednesday night. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says store employees said the shooting was related to a possible shoplifting incident. He says on Twitter that a person of interest “has been identified for questioning.”

The woman’s name hasn’t been released. The Chicago Tribune reports that store video shows the woman being thrown to the floor by a non-employee and shot.

The drugstore chain says it’s cooperating with police and is committed to providing a safe environment for workers and customers.
