Chicago is the Origin of Evanston IHOP Shooting
Officials mentioned they believe the man may have been involved in other incidents in Chicago on Saturday as well, including a shooting in Chicago’s East Hyde Park neighborhood on the South Side in which two women were shot.
According to the Chicago police report, a person entered an apartment building in the 4900 block of South East End Avenue before the Evanston IHOP shooting incident happened and asked to have a phone before firing shots in the direction of two women.
One woman was hit in the face, and the other was shot in the chest. They were taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center in critical condition, while the woman who was beaten in the chest died.
However, according to the police, the scene is safe, and there is no longer a threat to the community.
