(WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- An 18-year-old woman died days after she and a 17-year-old boy were shot last week in the parking lot of the River Oaks Center mall in south suburban Calumet City.

About 6 p.m. on Oct. 10, officers responded to a call of shots fired outside of the mall, located at 96 River Oaks Center Drive, Calumet City Chief of Police Christopher Fletcher said at a news conference.

Officers found the teens seriously injured from gunshot wounds, Fletcher said. They were transported to area hospitals.

Christin Ross was pronounced dead at 8:40 p.m. Oct. 12, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. She lived in Calumet City.

“This appears to not be a random act of violence,” Fletcher said. “There is no immediate threat to public safety.”

No arrests have been reported. An investigation is ongoing.
