    Mercy Hospital Chicago Shooting: 2 dead, including gunman
    A witness said they were just chatting and then he shot the doctor /former fiance. I don't think she had any idea what was happening. How horrible and sad. She was an emergency medical doctor. I hope everyone else survives this horror.

    Four People Dead in Shooting at Chicago Hospital -- New York Times

    excerpt:

    Among the dead, according to Mayor Rahm Emanuel, were a police officer, a doctor and a pharmacy technician. The gunman, who was not identified, was also killed; officials said they were uncertain whether the fatal shot had come from the police or by his own hand.

    Most of the victims had yet to be publicly named by the authorities, but the police said the officer killed was Samuel Jimenez, a father of three who had joined the Chicago Police Department last year and recently finished his probationary period.

    Domestic/Relationship violence spills over into a public shooting, yet again. Makes me sick to read.

    Another shooting because a man couldn't take no for an answer.

    Toxic masculinity.

    It's like it's all collapsing around us. Everywhere is a potential war zone now. This year has made it harder and harder to keep holding out hope for a better future. It's especially alarming, being a woman amidst god knows how many men who'd rather see us dead.

    History always repeats itself. It happened to the Akkadian Empire, the Hittite Empire, Mycenaean Greece, The Neo-Assyrian Empire, the Indus Valley Civilization, the Khmer Empire, the Han Dynasty. the Tang Dynasty, Anasazi, the Roman Empire, Izapa, Maya, the Munhumutapa Empire, and Olmec. It will happen again many times.

    I knew her, trained with her, saved lives with her and tonight, tried to save her life. Tonight, I broke down in front of my coworkers when we lost her, and tonight I held hands with her mother in prayer. Tonight, we lost a beautiful, resilient, passionate doc. Keep singing, TO.

    Hard to see what anyone would have found appealing about the suspect in the first place, but a romantic mistake should not cost lives, especially people who had nothing to do with it, imo.
    A Look At The Troubled Life Of Mercy Hospital Shooter Juan Lopez
    "CHICAGO (CBS) —
    The shooter’s very recent past gives clues as to how a man could become a killer.

    CBS 2 Investigator Brad Edwards learned for Juan Lopez, the relationship that ended with Dr. O’Neal coincided with domestic strife with his ex wife.

    In that case, court documents paint a portrait of a deadbeat dad and domestic abuser.

    Juan Lopez’s lives appear to have collided one week in late October. The week it appears Lopez was to marry Dr. O’Neal. The same week his ex-wife took him to court. She wanted Lopez to be held in contempt for failing to pay child support that racked up to nearly $6,000.

    And continuously moving and refusing to tell his ex where he is living.

    Documents state since the divorce, Lopez has had various and inconsistent employment. He was also given a minimum of six hours a month visitation with his son, at least three hours, two Saturdays a month. but he failed to even do that.

    To that six-year-old son, according to court documents Lopez said “his mom was evil and dark…” and that his son “shouldn’t marry a woman like me” — the mom’s words.

    Married in 2008, the now ex Mrs. Lopez had it six years later. By 2014 she filed for an order of protection against Juan Lopez, saying he “slept with pistol under his pillow,” “left it out accessible to child” and “pulled out his gun with intent to harm.”
