BLOOMINGDALE, Ill. — Body cam footage was released Monday that gives a look at the chaos that erupted early Saturday morning inside Indian Lakes Hotel in Bloomingdale.

The shooting happened around 2:30 a.m. early Saturday morning at the Indian Lakes Hotel on Schick Road.

A Chicago man, later identified as James McGill, died as a result of the shooting and five others were injured.

Body cam footage shows an officer trying to comfort a victim before carrying him out of the building.

“You’re gonna be okay dude you’re gonna be okay. I promise you’re gonna be fine,” they said.

Due to alleged past problems with the hotel, Bloomingdale now has a 10-day notice in the works; meaning the hotel will soon have to officially suspend operations.

It was issued on Tuesday.

The owner, First Hospitality Group, has voluntarily agreed to cease all business operations and
informed Bloomingdale officials that they have no intention to reopen business operations
on the property at this time
