This being Chicago it might be gang-related but hate jumping to something without more facts yet.

Hope the reports end up changing for the better since they sent off 10 ambulances

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. The savages sometimes try to finish the job at the hospitals. It's happened on more than one occassion where the shooting continues on at the hospital.

Heck, Chicago gangs are shooting up each other's funerals too. Just a couple of weeks ago, a local "rapper" was shot at one of his homies funeral.

While I do not live directly in Chicago, I am going to personally know people to responding to this scene.

Gun violence in Chicago is nothing new, but this situation is being reported as a active shooter inside the hospital. It's different.

This one hurts more than normal. Too close to home.

My mom works at an even more unsafe hospital in the Chicagoland area. Makes your mind wander.

Is it in the hospital? Cause if so I have seen SWAT teams in action before in training scenarios and they are efficient AF.

Witnesses says it started inside and moved outside. CPD is moving reporters and interrupting live feeds because the area is not secured.

Must be multiple shooters because this says police reported the perp was shot down.

One of the live feeds said two shooters.

They believe there was a original female "target".

Sounding more and more like a domestic issue. Perp shot a nurse who might be wife, g/f, ex, or something like that. When confronted with the police he shot at the police hence multiple hots heard.

Agreed. It is pathetic that I am relieved that a 'mass shooter' did not target a hospital.

Still deeply upsetting for the female and officer involved.
