    "My head hurts": Dad listens to daughter's shooting death
    [​IMG]
    CHICAGO - A father's worst nightmare played out in real time over the telephone last Friday, when David O'Connor unwittingly listened to his 25-year-old daughter die.

    Aaren O'Connor had moved to Chicago a little more than a year ago for a new job and to be closer to her boyfriend, reports CBS Chicago.

    Last Friday, she was sitting in her car outside her apartment complex, chatting with her dad, who said he had feared for the worst when she moved from San Diego to the notoriously violence-riddled city.

    Then, according to David O'Connor, something strange happened.

    "Every few moments she said, 'My head hurts. My head hurts," he said.

    David eventually hung up the phone and was unsure of what had just happened.

    "I didn't realize at the time but I was just having the last conversation with my daughter," he said.

    Neither he nor Aaren knew she had been shot in the head. The father only found out what happened after reaching Aaren's boyfriend, who called her roommate to check on her.

    The roommate found Aaren unresponsive in her car. She was rushed to the hospital but died Sunday.

    "I would have loved to have told her one more time I loved her and was proud of her," David O'Connor said. "She was an amazing girl."

    She continues to amaze her father, who just found out she was an organ donor.

    Another way Aaren will continue to give back for years to come is through a GoFundMe page established by her co-workers. The money raised will be used to help at-risk youth in Chicago and to fund a scholarship in Aaren's memory.

    "It gives her life meaning, and I so appreciate it," David O'Connor said.

    Very sad. As a parent that sickens me to think about. So much violence around here.

    To lose a child is one unthinkable horror. But to hear their last moments? There are no words.

    So a typical Friday in Chicago then? I don't get why ANYONE would go to work and live in that city, or Detroit, if they had the option not to.

    Depends on what part of the city you live in. There are some really great areas with very little crime...the Southside is bad and that's where all the gang violence occurs. Gold Coast, Wicker Park, Old Town, Lakeview are all nice neighborhoods and quite safe. It's like any other city...good parts and not so good parts.

    Is it true that Houston went to hell after New Orleans "refugees" from Hurricane Katrina showed up?

    Some night when your laying in bed and your not jacking your meat put on the police scanner on your phone (free app ) and just listen to the crime and shootings there will make your hair stand up . Its no where like you see on Mike And Molly Black on black crime its a dam shame Yo Mr President send the National Guard in in stead of golfing .
