The altercation began when the attacker got into an argument in the hospital's parking lot with an employee with whom he had a personal relationship, according to a Chicago police official in WBBM's report. 

Soon after that, shots were fired and police hurried to the hospital on the city's South Side. 

One of the victims was reportedly a doctor and another was a pharmaceutical assistant, WBBM reported. Both were women.
