The Chicago Police Department said authorities were called to the discount store on the city’s West Side.

The incident occurred on Friday afternoon at approximately 1:30 p.m.

According to FOX 32, authorities said that the suspect approached 43-year-old Loyce Wright with a rifle.

Wright, a security guard at the store, was struck multiple times by the gunfire.

The 43-year-old was rushed to Stroger Hospital, police confirmed with the local outlet.

He later died from his injuries.

Jessie Brown, who works as a security at a store next door, said he was at work when he heard the barrage of gunfire.

“I was at work and I heard the gunshots next door,” Brown told FOX 32.

“So I went next door to go see what happened and then I see my friend, Loyce, on the ground.”

Brown said that he had known Wright for 20 years and that the pair both worked in security.
