鲍比·劳瑞 was talking with a longtime door woman 和 a 77-year-old neighbor moments before a gunman walked into her East 海德公园 condo building 和 shot the other two women, killing one.
劳里说：“我们只是在星期六的下午闲聊，完全不知道会发生什么。”劳里住在纽约州4900街区巴克莱大楼约70套公寓之一。 东南大街。 “我们在谈论 梅斯勒（厨房），我们附近最喜欢的餐厅。 Miss Hinton 告诉我们她的旅行 New Orleans 她哥哥是厨师实际上，一名送货司机刚刚为 Mardi Gras that he’d sent her.”
Lawrie’s building was one of multiple locations across two cities in which three people were killed 和 four injured in a shooting spree that police tied to a single gunman — a man who apparently had made threats in rambling videos posted to social media before the shootings 和 before he engaged with Evanston 警察，枪杀了他。

的n we heard gunshots, Lawrie said. “We tried to get out of the lobby, the other woman 和 myself. And now the other woman is 在里面 hospital.”
Michael Ahasay, a 21-year resident 和 treasurer of the Barclay condo board said he 和 other residents couldn’t understand the seemingly random violence 在里面ir small upscale lake-facing side of Hyde Park 通过Metra高架桥与附近的其他地区隔离。
“She was a very lovely 和 kind person that worked at the Barclay …她将因这种无谓的举动而非常想念。”他说。
When it appeared that she resisted his request, he “rifled through his jacket, turned 和 shot her as she was trying to flee through the front door, but she ended up making her way, getting out of the building. But she had already been shot,” he said.
的 gunman then fired into the lobby, hitting the 77-year-old resident at least three times. 的 third woman, Lawrie, wasn’t harmed.
当天早些时候，范一直坐在他的车里 据警方称，东海德公园与女友一起发短信。当她没有收到他的回音时，她去了车库，发现他被枪杀了。警方随后表示，范的拍摄是Nightengale横冲直撞的第一枪，最终以他自己在 Evanston.

离开Barclay公寓大楼后，Nightengale被指控跟随一名男子到附近另一栋建筑物的19楼，并要求提供该男子的红色钥匙。 Toyota at 下午3点星期六。然后，Nightengale被指控进入一家便利店，并宣布在9300街区发生抢劫案。 South Halsted Street 布朗说，在布雷纳德附近。他开枪打中20岁 布朗（Anthony Brown）称安东尼·福克纳（Anthony Faulkner）为“只是一个随机的受害者”。
