The male victim in the Monday night shooting at the entrance to KU Hospital has now died, according to KCK police.

He was one of two shot by a gunman late Monday in the entrance to the hospital, who then killed himself.

Police were first notified of a shooting at 7th and Osage around 11:30 p.m. Monday night, about three miles from KU Hospital. 

A man and a woman left there and drove to the hospital.  The suspect pursued them in another vehicle, police said.

At KU Hospital, the man and woman stopped their car at the bottom of the ramp to the emergency department and ran to the main hospital entrance. 

The suspect ran after them and as the pair made it into the first set of entrance doors the suspect shot both.

Police said the suspect then shot and killed himself.

The female victim has minor wounds. Police hope to speak with her to learn more details about the initial incident.

No hospital employees were involved or injured in the incident, according to a KU Hospital spokesperson.
