Three people were shot dead at a Chicago hospital on Monday afternoon. Of the three was the gunman’s former fiancé. Also killed were police officer Samuel Jimenez and Dayna Less, 25, a first-year pharmacy resident.

Speaking on the media Monday night, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said that one of the victims “was in a domestic relationship” with the shooter. CBS Chicago reported that Lopez opened fire on his ex-fiancé as she walked into the hospital, wearing her scrubs, after the pair had an argument in the parking lot.

Johnson said that a friend attempted to intervene in the argument, at which “the offender lifted up his shirt and displayed a handgun.” Mass shootings need to end. Ending someone’s life over an argument is no way to handle a situation like this.
