After a shooting murder Thursday night in a Walgreens parking lot at 87th Street and Kedzie Avenue in Evergreen Park, the suspected shooter was shot and killed Friday night by agents of the South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force near the Metra Lake Cook Train Station in the Deerfield, Northbrook area. The Evergreen Park suspect was shot and killed after a shootout with police that started on a Metra train near the Lake Cook Road train station Friday night.

In the Evergreen Park incident, police said 34-year-old David Murrell was shot and killed in an SUV in the parking lot of a Walgreens at 87th Street and Kedzie Avenue in Evergreen Park at about 6:50 p.m. Thursday. Evergreen Park police and agents of the South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force were immediately investigating the murder Thursday night.

The South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force agents were apparently following — and then confronting the suspect — when he attempted to escape by boarding a Metra train that was stopping at the Lake Cook Road station. Agents with the South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force chased the suspect onto the train when it stopped at the Lake Cook Road Station at about 10:30 p.m., according to a Metra spokesperson.

The suspect was in a seat on the first floor of the double decker passenger train car after the pursuit into the train and after he was approached by South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force agents in his first floor seat.

When suspect resisted the agents and pulled out a gun, and fired at the agents inside the train, the agents returned fire, according to police.

The suspect was eventually shot and killed outside of the Metra train. Northbrook firefighter/paramedics responded to the scene with a report that two people were shot, and that one victim was west of the railroad tracks and one victim was east of the railroad tracks.

After clarification, it was discovered that two South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force agents sustained minor injuries during incident and did not suffer gunshot wounds.

Two agents were transported to a local hospital in one ambulance, were hospitalized for minor injuries for a short time, and were released. The suspect, who was down on the west side of the railroad tracks, was transported in another ambulance with injuries reported as “critical” and was pronounced dead at a hospital

The South Suburban Major Crimes Task Force confirmed that the person shot and killed was a suspect in a murder in Evergreen Park on Thursday night.

Metra police were not involved in the shooting and no Metra employees or passengers were hurt, according to a Metra spokesperson.

The outbound Milwaukee District North Line train had 40 passengers at the time of the shooting, officials said. The train remained at the scene for investigation into Saturday morning.
