Oakbrook Terrace responded to the call around 8:15 PM on December 2nd. Phillips allegedly got into an argument with several people at the hotel pool, including Pruitt. She then reportedly followed the group to the 7th floor. A fight broke out and Phillips allegedly fired three shots, with two of them hitting Pruitt in the back and side.
After the incident, Phillips returned to her room. She was arrested shortly after and police discovered the 9mm handgun in a waistband holster she was wearing.
