Initially one GSW victim was on the east side of the train depot and one GSW victim was on the west side of the train depot.

A11’s crew transporting two stable patients.

The third injured person also apparently has a GSW — but the information was not confirmed.

There is also police activity at the Deerfield Portillo’s, which is ironic because protesters gathered outside the Deerfield Portillo’s at the grand opening in November 2016 to demonstrate to persuade Portillo’s to ban guns at all of Portillo’s locations. The Deerfield Portillo’s is located at 700 Lake Cook Road, about 1200 feet northwest of the Metra train station.
