Just some facts:
The shooter started arguing with his former fiancee (she had recently called off the engagement) in the parking lot where she worked as an ER doctor, proceeded to pull out a 9mm, and shot her 3 times in the chest and then stood over her body and shot her 3 more times. Her friend had run into the hospital to get away. A police car drove up to him at that point, so he started shooting at them, then ran into the hospital to get away from them, where there was a gun battle between the police and the shooter which ended up killing a (female) pharmaceutical student and an officer, as well as the assailant. We still don’t know if he shot himself or if one of the police did it.
So far in 2018, two Chicago police officers (including this one) have been killed in the line of duty. At least 62 women have been killed in Chicago by the men in their lives, in the same time period.
But all the coverage is about how an officer was shot.
This was yet another man-kills-his-woman story. Without the police car driving right up to him in the parking lot, he might well have run off after finishing his objective of killing his former fiancee.
But no, most of the coverage is about the ‘fallen hero’.
