    I've been the officer's family member that received this call. I don't wish it on anyone. My family member lived but so many are not as fortunate, and my heart breaks every time I hear of an officer down.

    Thank you for starting this thread.

    Doing intentional harm in a place that is meant for healing hurts to hear about.

    Seems like we should get answers in the case about motive, etc. Sounds like a domestic situation, but why the seemingly random shooting then?

    Chicago hospital shooting: Shooter dead, at least 3 others wounded, including police officer, at Mercy Hospital
    "Witnesses said that before the shooting began, the shooter had been talking to a woman who became his first victim.

    James Gray saw at least two people get shot. Gray said he was coming out of the clinic area when he saw a man in a black coat, black hat and dark pants shoot a woman three times in the chest. The man and the woman had been walking and talking to each other before the shooting, he said. The gunman stood over the woman and shot her three more times after she fell to the ground, said Gray. Then a squad car turned its lights on and came down the drive and the gunman shot at the squad car."

    “It’s just a messed up situation and I was trying to help out as much as I could,” he said. "Get people to get out of the way of the windows. Because he could have easily just aimed at us, too. Because he was just shooting like a maniac. And he obviously knows how to shoot because he was holding the gun with both hands."
