It was inside room 614 where they would find a 24 year old Johnathan Wright lying on the floor when a gunshot wound in his forehead. Police are saying Wright was responsive but going in and out of consciousness because of the injury and blood loss.

Officers noticed that although Ann Marie born Joann Marie Slater appeared to be distraught, she never shed any tears.

The Tribune reports that

Slater told police numerous times that a gun went off and struck Wright in the forehead after it fell off a table. Police said she continued asking if Wright was OK or dead. She also told authorities that she was unable to provide Wright’s or her own ID, but stated that she “grew up” with the victim and they knew each other from school in Chicago.
