(Bloody Chicago video) 1 Dead, 1 wounded in Orland Square Mall targeted shooting

Chicago style violence visited its southwest suburbs last night as an 18-year-old man was shot to death at Orland Square Mall in Orland Park. I attended high school in Orland Park, as did Bloody Chicago's Victor Maggio, who was on the scene an astounding ten minutes after the shooting.

Maggio reports that the police know who the alleged killer is.

One person was grazed by a bullet. The shooter remains at large.

UPDATE from ABC Chicago:
Orland Park police have identified the man they said shot and killed an 18-year-old man and wounded another person at Orland Square Mall Monday night.

Police said 19-year-old Jakharr Williams of University Park is responsible for the shooting. Williams has an active parole warrant and a manhunt for him is underway.

The victim of the shooting has been identified to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office as Javon Britten of Richton Park.

Could you imagine that ever happening when we were kids? That mall is now a cesspool. People around us avoid it like the plague.

When I was a kid the biggest "crime" taking place there was wasting time.
