Gunman shoots several at Chicago hospitalAn apparent gunman shot several people at Chicago’s Mercy Hospital on Monday afternoon, including a police officer, authorities said. A Chicago police spokesperson said the officer is in critical condition and the offender was shot.

An occupational therapist working inside said the public-address system announced the hospital was under attack by an active shooter.

“Then people began running around saying to shut doors and barricade them and hide under desks,” the therapist told The Daily Beast. “It was terrifying. I had to look on my badge to see what ‘code silver’ was and then I realized it was serious. Then I had to barricade my office and I couldn’t figure out what to use which was scary.”
