EVANSTON, Ill. — A fourth victim died Sunday following a shooting spree that started in Chicago and ended in Evanston just over a week ago.
The last of the victims as Jason Nightengale shot seven people apparently at random, killing three others, was named by the medical examiner as 61-year-old Marta Torres.
The Evanston resident was shot inside the local iHop after Nightengale attempted to take her hostage as he fled from police.
Torres had been in critical condition until she succumbed to her injuries Saturday around 6 p.m.
This brings the death toll from that spree to four; five if you include Nightengale himself, who died in a shootout with police after firing his gun on Torres.
Also killed in the shooting spree were 46-year-old Aisha Johnson, 20-year-old Anthony Faulkner and 30-year-old University of Chicago PhD student Yiran Fan.
