CHICAGO (CBS)-- Two men have been charged in a shooting that took place at Oakbrook Center mall.

Prosecutors said Williams came to the mall with a gun on Dec 3. Officials said at some point, around 6 p.m., Williams and Lane fired shots at each other at the packed mall near Ann Taylor and Auntie Anne's Williams was shot four times, but Lane was not injured.

An officer, who ran out of Nordstrom after hearing shots, saw two men shooting at each other and a companion with one of the two, who is also a suspect in the shootout, but is not in custody.

Four innocent bystanders also were shot, according to police and prosecutors; including three women and a man. An 18-year-old woman also suffered a broken ankle as she tried to get away.

On Wednesday, a DuPage County judge set bond for the Williams and Lane at $1 million. They will have to be on electronic monitoring if they bond out. The next court date for Williams is January 20 and January 19 for Lane.

The search for the third suspect is ongoing.

Police released a photo of the person they are searching for, saying at the time of the shooting, he was wearing a blue puffy jacket and tight dark jeans. They also asked that anyone who lives near Oakbrook Center check their security video for him or anything that might give information about the incident.

Officials said the third suspect was seen with Lane.

The motive for the shooting is not clear. Prosecutors did mention there may have been beef over social media.
