A Chicago woman shot three state troopers inside a luxury cigar lounge, before turning the gun on herself.
Police responded to a call of shots fired inside the Humidor Cigar Lounge in Lisle, Illinois about 10:13 p.m. Friday.
When they arrived with their guns drawn, they found four people shot in a room inside the cigar lounge. 51-year-old Lisa McMullan was pronounced dead at the scene.
Retired state trooper Gregory Rieves was shot in the back of the head. Rieves, 51, died at an area hospital. He had retired from the state police in March 2019 after 25 years of service.
Two more officers were suffering from gunshot wounds. They were transported to a local hospital.
After securing the scene, police reviewed the surveillance video. They saw patrons in a media room watching sports on a big-screen television.
Without provocation, McMullan stood up and shot Rieves seated in front of her. She then fired several rounds at two other men in the room before fatally shooting herself.
The two wounded men were identified as retired state trooper Lloyd Graham, 55, and 48-year-old Kaiton Bullock (right), a state trooper who was off-duty when he was shot.
Illinois State Police Director Brendan Kelley said Bullock and Graham are hospitalized in serious but stable condition.
Acting Lisle Police Chief Ron Wilke said McMullan and the three men were "acquaintances" and patrons of the cigar lounge. "I believe they know each other, but do not believe there is any relation," Wilke said.
CBS2 Chicago reported that Rieves and McMullan attended Proviso East High School together in the 1980s. Both were known to frequent the cigar lounge together, police say.
"Greg has always been special to the family," said his cousin, Carolina Mosley. "He's always had this bright smile and he was always the coolest kid. He was loved by his family. Since he was young, he wanted to be a police officer."
Mosley said Rieves played baseball for Indiana State. "He was really good, but he just didn't cross over, so this was the career he chose."
Police do not know the motive for the shooting. An investigation is ongoing.
