About this Article

A Detroit man who was shot by a security guard at Oakbrook Center may have spent hours staking out the mall with two accomplices Sunday before they tried to rob a jewelry store with a sledgehammer, authorities said Monday. "It's not like they came from the parking lot and walked right in," Oak Brook Police Chief James Kruger said.
