A strip club in a north suburban Chicago suburb has reopened after a gunman shot himself in the head and then took his own life during an altercation that ended with a police standoff.
Sam’s Club Bakery owner Shoshana Hani, 38, was hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the neck, and she was recovering on Monday from surgery to repair her skull, according to a statement from the company.
Hani, who lives in the same house as her husband, Shimon, who works at a restaurant, was working on a Saturday night when an altercation broke out between the two men.
Hania said she was not aware that her husband had fired his gun, and the shooter then got out of the kitchen, according the statement.
The gunman fired a shotgun, hitting Hania in the neck and chest, then shot himself, police said.
The gunman had a gun, but no identification.
Hanni said she thought her husband was in the bathroom when he opened fire.
The shooting, she said, was like a bullet to the head.HANI, who worked at Sam’s Club for four years before becoming a manager in 2015, was treated at a hospital and released, the statement said.
Police were called to the scene at 8:30 p.m.
Hani told WLS-TV that she thought the man who opened fire was her husband and that she was the target of the gunman.
Hania said he was in his 30s, with a beard and had tattoos of a black and white tiger.
“He was talking to me like he wanted to buy me a beer,” Hania told the station.
The couple had recently moved to a different home, she told the Chicago Tribune.
