Store Opening in Space of Tinley Park Shootings
TINLEY PARK, Ill. (AP) -- A new retailer is opening in the suburban Chicago store space where a gunman shot and killed five women almost six years ago.

The Southtown Star reports TJ Maxx will open Thursday in the renovated space in Tinley Park.

The February 2008 shooting at a Lane Bryant store occurred during a botched robbery attempt. It remains unsolved.

A spokeswoman for T.J. Maxx's parent company says the retailer didn't know about the shootings when it selected the location. The company is donating $10,000 to a charity created in memory of the slain women.

There's a $100,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the gunman, who authorities say disguised himself as a deliveryman and forced the women into a back room and shot them. A sixth woman survived.
