CHICAGO >> Authorities say a 22-year-old woman died a day after she was shot inside a Nordstrom department store in Chicago during Black Friday shopping.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office says 22-year-old Nadia Ezaldein was pronounced dead at 3:43 p.m. on Saturday. Authorities say 31-year-old Marcus Dee shot Ezaldein before killing himself.

Police say Ezaldein was a seasonal employee at the store. Officers found her dead when they arrived Friday night at the store along Chicago’s Magnificent Mile shopping district. The store was closed Saturday and was to reopen on Sunday. Nordstrom spokeswoman Tara Darrow called the shootings a “really sad and scary situation.” She says the company is doing its best to support employees.

Authorities say there was no threat to other customers or employees. An investigation is ongoing.
