A Chicago woman who fatally shot a retired state trooper and wounded two others at a cigar bar had written "I hate you ... hope you two die!" on a wall of her home.
51-year-old Lisa McMullan shot and killed retired state trooper Gregory Rieves, 51, before turning the gun on herself. The incident happened inside a media room at the Humidor Cigar Lounge in Lisle, Illinois about 10:13 p.m. Friday.
Another retired state trooper and an off-duty trooper were also shot. They are in stable condition at a local hospital, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Police executed a search warrant on McMullan's Chicago condo, Lisle police said Monday. McMullan had scrawled on a wall of her condo in black marker: "I hate you ... hope you two die!"
The message contained Rieves' name and the name of another man. Police believe McMullan targeted Rieves and the other man. The second man was not at the cigar lounge at the time of the shooting.
In a press release, Lisle police said they contacted the other man but they were withholding his name. He is not a police officer. "It's just someone she knew."
Investigators are still trying to determine the motive behind the shooting. Police say both Rieves and McMullan were regular patrons at the cigar lounge.
It was originally reported that the two attended high school together in Maywood, Illinois, but police said they have learned McMullan attended high school in Chicago.
