At 1:02 a.m. that morning, gunfire erupted at Poppy's Chat Room, 5333 W. Madison St. Police said a group of people were inside the café when someone came in and shot them all.

Ariana Murphy, 19, was killed, and three other female victims – ages 17, 19, and 20 – were rushed to emergency rooms with gunshot wounds.

On Wednesday, police released surveillance video of some people gathered in a hallway. First, one passes a smartphone to the other. Another later seems to be holding a camera, while one also walks by with what looks like a gun in hand.
