Four dead after Chicago hospital gunman opened fire, killing ex-fiancee

The shooting happened near the Mercy Hospital in Chicago

Officer Samuel Jimenez, who joined the Chicago police force past year, died during the gun fight, officials said.

Tammy, as her relatives knew her, attended church services Sunday with Lopez and her family in IN, where she was from, Tom O'Neal said.

Johnson said: 'When they pulled up, they heard the gunshots. The offender was talking to a woman and then shot her in the chest. "She had nothing to do with nothing, and he shot her", he said.

"It may have been 15 minutes, but it seemed like an eternity", she said. She was a recent graduate of Purdue University. Samuel Jimenez, a 28-year-old police officer and father, was also killed during the gunfight.

Workers at the Chicago hospital where a gunman fatally shot his ex-fiancée and two others had gone through their first active-shooter drill only a few weeks ago. The shooting apparently began as the suspect was walking with a woman near a parking lot.

Police Activity: Reports of shots fired in the vicinity of 26th and MI near Mercy Hospital. In the attack at least six people were injured, one was killed.

The Cook County Medical Examiner's office says it has been notified that four people have died in the shooting at Chicago's Mercy Hospital & Medical Center.

Superintendent Eddie Johnson said there was an argument in the vehicle park between Lopez and Dr O'Neal at around 3.30pm yesterday. Both of the women were taken to other hospitals nearby.

The city of Chicago, Illinois, was the scene of a horrific workplace shooting that has claimed the lives of four people including the shooter.

The attacker also died on Monday but it was not clear if he took his own life or was killed by police, Superintendent Eddie Johnson said.

In a statement on Monday night, Mercy Hospital named the employees shot dead as emergency room physician Tamara O'Neal and pharmacy resident Dayna Less.

James Gray said he was inside Mercy Hospital when the shooting unfolded.

"It was chaos. It was just mass chaos. They were behind the cars, protecting themselves, and at that point I just said, 'You know what, I don't know where this person is, I don't know if they've come out or if they're still in there, ' so we got away from the windows".

A friend tried to intervene in the argument, Johnson said, and the shooter lifted his shirt and displayed a handgun.

When officers arrived, the suspect fired at their squad auto and then ran inside the hospital.

The sound of gunfire rang through a Chicago hospital on Monday, leaving three dead.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Juan Lopez confronted 38-year-old Tamar O'Neal at about 3:30 PM inside the hospital parking lot.

That rampage followed the worst anti-Semitic attack in modern USA history, when a gunman opened fire on worshipers at a synagogue in the United States city of Pittsburgh on October 27.
