Chicago police officer shot following traffic stop on South Side

Chicago police officer shot following traffic stop on South Side

The gunshots killed a police officer and a pharmacy resident, authorities said.

Officer Jimenez responded to an officer's assistance call and was one of multiple officers who ran toward the gunfire. Lopez shot O'Neal, then opened fire on police who were arriving on the scene - about a minute after her initial 911 call, Johnson said.

The 38-year-old led her church choir and was "dedicated to caring for her community", said Dr. Patrick O'Connor, director of Mercy Hospital's emergency department, where O'Neal worked. "How do we stop the flow of people in or out depending on what you need at that location?'" Kathy Guider said.

"I knew her, trained with her, saved lives with her and tonight, tried to save her life", Dr John Purakal of the University of Chicago Medicine, wrote on Twitter. He said she was warm and caring, and a charismatic and committed doctor.

"Dayna was a very special person".

Less was tenacious in all things, her father said, including her career.

Purakal met O'Neal in 2014, at the start of their residency program at the University of IL at Chicago.

"There's absolutely no reason for this, but I want her remembered for what good she brought into this world - the light that she brought, and not, I don't want her remembered as a victim", said Brian. "There was screaming", she recalled. They directed us to see what her boss at the hospital said. I'm so grateful to God, my family and my EM mentors.

Two funds were established in her honor, including one focused on research to curb gun violence and domestic abuse.

"Tamara was an incredible advocate, particularly for physicians of color or anyone that may have expressed an inkling of doubt, ' they wrote, "as her disarming nature and warm smile made it easy for even the shyest aspiring doctor to inquire about the fantastic job she loved, and in due time lend herself as a resource'". It is not clear whether she ultimately was granted the order.

The ex-fiance, Juan Lopez, wanted the engagement ring back, Johnson said.

Less, 25, was killed as she was getting off an elevator.

"She talked about it a lot, and about the incessant national tragedy that all these people are dying needlessly", said Patrick Connor, MD, Mercy Hospital's emergency department director. In fact, he didn't even hear calls about it on his radio. Jimenez had been delivering his station's mail to the post office when he turned and followed other squad cars racing to the hospital.

After O'Neal fell to the ground, a witness said Lopez "stood over her and shot her three more times", the Associated Press reported. He had just become a full-fledged member of the force after completing a probationary training period, Johnson told reporters.
