How could that be?! Illinois is about as hostile to the Second Amendment as you can get.

The shooter is probably a Democrat.

According to latest reports from a worker at the scene, suspect entered the capitol building with a shotgun, shot a security guard in the stomach, and then got in a car and fled. Security guard is down, condition unknown. Will update more when I find out.

Chain of events leading up to shooting: at a local gun shop, someone was shot (not fatal), and a white early 20's male made off with a shotgun; all indications are that this suspect then went to the capitol and shot the guard. Only description of perp so far is that he's white, male, with "chains on his pants."

Sounds either put-up or personal. Why stop with the security guard?

"shotgun..."

Not an assault rifle.

Update: Police might have suspect in custody, captured at 1st and Vine streets, not far from capitol. Workers at capitol are sequestered in offices; other state govt. buildings might be following suit.
