LISLE, Ill. (AP) -- Police said a 51-year-old woman fatally shot a retired Illinois State Police trooper Friday night and injured another retired state trooper and and off-duty trooper before turning the gun on herself at a cigar lounge in suburban Chicago Friday.

Lisle police said the shooting happened Friday night at the Humidor Cigar Lounge.
