Four people have died in Chicago hospital following a shooting incident.

They include two female members of staff, a police officer, and the gunman himself.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel confirmed that the two women killed were a doctor and a pharmaceutical assistant.

A police spokesman said the gunman died in the exchanges but it is not clear if he took his own life.

A second officer avoided injury after a bullet fired in his direction lodged in his gun.

Officials say the gunman appeared to target a woman he was in a relationship with, but they did not suggest why.
