Clearly he is not a "NICE Respectful" man if he goes around shooting people.

Clearly life and years change people. Apparently he is a sick man and will certainly pay for what he did. Unfortunately, the families will pay also. My heart goes out to the families.

How did you get names? There was so little information in the press about this story you would think there was a cover up!

A cover-up? Really? Did you not read the article attached to this page - it clearly has the victim's and the shooter's name.

The 31-year-old man allegedly shot and killed a 29-year-old woman before attempting to take his own life at a graduation party in the town north just of Western Springs.

Two counts because attempting to kill yourself is illegal also

You cannot really believe what you just wrote, do you? It is because she was pregnant but good guess.

I take it the literacy level in Westchester is rather low? It clearly gives the names of those involved. The only thing covered up is your ability to read.

She was not pregnant.
1ST charge is because it's illegal to kill someone.
2nd charge is because it's illegal to point a weapon at someone.
FYI; Now there are SIX charges and hopefully they all stick.
Stop one = Cook County Jail
Stop two = Prison
Final stop = HELL

I get what you said but pointing a gun isn't murder and it said he was charged with 2 counts of murder. I don't really care I just want him to pay for what he did. It was so senseless.

Brian Himber was an extremely troubled trooper. He was assigned to District 15 (Oak Brook) and patrolled the tollroads of Northern Illinois. I used to run into him in Cook County Circuit Court in Rolling Meadows and we used to drink together while on duty many times. Troopers do not have a great deal of supervision and can do whatever they please. We get our own squad cars and have plenty of chance to play. A lot of troubled state troopers. Every trooper and police officer should undergo annual polygraph and psychological testing.

Pointing a gun at someone is an intent to kill.

I agree testing should be done.
