(Newser) – Authorities say a woman who was shot by her ex-boyfriend inside a Nordstrom in Chicago before he turned the gun on himself has died. The Cook County medical examiner's office says 22-year-old Nadia Ezaldein was pronounced dead at 3:43pm yesterday. The medical examiner had previously identified the male shooter as 31-year-old Marcus Dee, though they were unable to determine his last known address.

Police found Dee dead upon arrival Friday night at the store located in the upscale River North neighborhood shopping district known as the Magnificent Mile. Police say Ezaldein was a seasonal employee at the store. They say there was no threat to other customers or employees. An investigation is ongoing. The store was expected to reopen today.
