Chicago woman kills herself at Article II Gun Range in Lombard

By SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA

LOMBARD The death of a 24-year-old Chicago woman at a Lombard gun range has been ruled a suicide, according to Lombard Chief of Police Ray Byrne.

The 24-year-old woman died as a result of an incident March 23 at Article II Gun Range in Lombard, according to a DuPage County Coroner's Office news release. She was pronounced dead March 24 at Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, the release stated.

There is no evidence of foul play, according to the release.

Byrne said she shot herself at the gun range and her death was ruled a suicide; he added that no more information will be released regarding this incident.

This is the local range where I shoot and this is the second suicide committed there in as many years. This is just going to fan the fires of those wanting to close all the ranges in the Chicago land area.

Tragic loss of life and I'm sure no fault of any person on the range. Common sense would rule out faulting the range, the weapon or where it was purchased. But try telling liberals we should stop selling rope, building bridges or tall buildings, or cars emitting carbon monoxide. Again tragic.

Very sad and tragic news Chuck. I know the media jumps all over news like this. Nothing could have been done to prevent it, unless the lady had opened up to someone.

They say that she was at the range with her boyfriend when she did it. I don't know if they were sharing a lane or they each had a lane.

It's happened at a local club here a few times over the past 10 years. Someone comes in, watches the mandatory video for a 1st time, rents a gun, buys a box of ammo and heads to the range and bam...

IDK, seems like a of work, but....RIP
