Two people have died after a shooting at the Warwick-Allerton Hotel in the heart of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, and details are slowly emerging about the violent incident that rocked guests this afternoon.

The incident happened on the 18thand floor of the hotel, according to authorities.

Police have recovered the weapon that was used in the incident and are working to identify the man and woman who were killed in the shooting.

Police say a man and a woman were discovered unresponsive with gunshot wounds to the head just before 5 p.m. Monday.

The woman was rushed to a nearby hospital, but was pronounced dead. The man was pronounced dead at the hotel, authorities said.

Hotel guests say they heard the gunshots and the commotion that ensued.

“I just heard two loud bangs which turned out to be gunshots,” said hotel guest Benny Rincoin. “I heard two explosions and a woman’s voice during the uproar. She was lying in the hallway right next to my bedroom door.

Hotel guest Terri Green is in town for her daughter’s graduation.

“It’s so painful to hear something like this happen,” she said. “I’m pissed that none of the staff told us anything.”

No cause of death has yet been determined and autopsies are scheduled for Tuesday.
