Gunman killed himself after shot by police

CHICAGO (AP) – Police say the man who killed three people at a Chicago hospital fired his handgun at least 30 times before he fatally shot himself after being shot by police.

Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says the gunman, Juan Lopez, spotted police and ran inside Mercy Hospital after he fatally shot his ex-fiancée, Dr. Tamara O’Neal, in the parking lot.

Once inside the hospital, Lopez shot pharmacy resident Dayna Less as she exited an elevator. Lopez then exchanged gunfire with police and killed Officer Samuel Jimenez.

Guglielmi says Lopez was shot in the chest, but then shot himself with the Glock semi-automatic handgun he was carrying.

Guglielmi says Lopez was carrying one gun that he’d reloaded to continue firing. Guglielmi says Lopez fired his gun at least 30 times.
