The incident occurred at around 10:45 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 11, at The Shops at Mark Center (1458 N. Beauregard Street).
“The male suspect entered the store and assaulted a 56-year-old male customer with a handheld blunt object,” police said in a news release. “The suspect then fled the store and was later discovered in an apartment complex nearby with self-inflicted wounds to his head.”
