Further investigation into the shooting revealed that a third party, a U.S. Navy member, co-worker of VanLandingham’s and Highland Park resident, witnessed the incident and out of fear for his life, drove his Land Rover into the shooter, Ryan Zike, 33, just after Zike shot himself in the head, according to a press release from the LFPD. The witness is a 37-yearold man who arrived at VanLandingham’s apartment in the 200 block of E. Deerpath Road on the morning on Jan. 3 to drive her to work, according to the release. Deputy Chief Rob Copeland said they are not aware of a romantic relationship between VanLandingham and the witness. “They were just coworkers in the Navy dental program and worked in the same building. He lives a little farther away from the base than she does, and he was just picking her up to give her a ride to work,” Copeland said. The release also reveals that Zike, of Louisville, Ky., and VanLandingham lived together for a period of time in VanLandingham’s apartment. In October of 2017, it says, Zike moved out of VanLandingham’s apartment and moved back in with his family in Louisville. Claire VanLandingham was gunned down Jan. 3 by Ryan Zike. The two had previously been in a relationship that ended in the fall. 22nd century media file photo Zike, who allegedly shot VanLandingham, 27, multiple times in the incident, reportedly drove to Illinois and stayed overnight at an unknown location on Jan. 2. The next morning, the release says, Zike approached VanLandingham as she was leaving her apartment for work just prior to 6:20 a.m. Zike and VanLandingham engaged in a brief conversation in the parking area of the apartment complex, when Zike produced a semi-automatic pistol and shot her several times, the release says. After shooting Van- Landingham, it continues, Zike shot and killed himself. The witness was reportedly parked in a position where his headlights illuminated VanLandingham and Zike during the initial conversation and the shooting. The witness told investigators he felt Zike was going to turn the gun on him; therefore he made the decision to hit the man with his vehicle. After the witness hit Zike with his car, Copeland said he crashed his car into another car in the parking lot. After hitting Zike with a car, the release says, the witness attempted first aid on VanLandingham. The witness reportedly ran into a nearby business — a Dunkin’ Donuts is attached to the parking lot — to request help and for someone to call 911. VanLandingham was eventually transported to Lake Forest Hospital where she was pronounced dead. Zike had a valid Kentucky concealed carry gun permit, the release states, and was armed with two pistols and a knife at the Please see shooting, 6 Consistent, Reliable and Compassionate Care at Home Caring for Those You Love in the Comfort of Home • In-Home Companionship • Recreational Activities • Protection from Falling • Errands & Appointments Is the Muscular System Solution for you? • Want to improve in your sports performance? • Want to decrease joint pain? • Want to keep improving after physical therapy ends?
