Woman jumps out window to escape gunmen
A south suburban woman was injured after jumping from a third-floor window to escape two gunmen who shot and killed her boyfriend. The Lansing woman was able to run to a neighbor's home for help after she jumped.
Witnesses say the gunmen were waiting for 33-year-old Edward Simon to return home with the couple's three children. The shooting happened in front of the kids but they were not hurt.
The woman remains hospitalized.
Police suspect robbery may have been the motive.
