CHICAGO (AP) — A CEO who police say was shot and wounded by a demoted co-worker remained in critical condition Friday at Chicago’s Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

The shooting happened Thursday morning at a high-rise office building in downtown Chicago’s financial district. The hospital provided a statement from Steven LaVoie’s family. His relatives called the shooting “a horrific personal tragedy” for two families.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office has identified the alleged gunman as 60-year-old Anthony DeFrances. LaVoie is chief executive officer of ArrowStream, a supply-chain management technology company. DeFrances was listed as the company’s chief technology officer.

ArrowStream released a statement, saying the company is “deeply saddened and shocked.”
