Mr Guglielmi also tweeted that one Chicago police officer has been shot and “is in critical condition but receiving excellent care”.

CBS said that sources reported that the gunman had targeted a woman, who witnesses said was dressed in hospital scrubs, in the parking lot of the hospital. There were unconfirmed reports of additional shooting victims.

“I heard shots fired, I turned around to my right and I see a man shooting someone on the ground — shot him multiple times,” the witness said

Then almost immediately an officer was already coming in… He exchanged fire with them, and then reloaded, shot the person on the ground again, and then made himself inside the hospital and more shots fired.”

Mr Guglielmi said officers had responded to reports of multiple victims. At least 15 medic units were sent to Mercy hospital, according to Chicago Fire Department Public Information Officer Larry Merritt.

Erix Horton, who works for the hospital’s environmental services department, told the Chicago Tribune, the moment when he was told of the shooting
