ELMOOD PARK, Ill. —  A Walgreens manager is being held on $250,000 bond after police say he shot a shoplifter outside of the Elmwood Park store.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, 31-year-old Roman DiMoreno is charged with felony counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm and no valid FOID card.
