CHICAGO (AP) — Actress DuShon Monique Brown, who played a secretary in the NBC show “Chicago Fire,” has died at age 49.

The Cook County medical examiner’s spokeswoman Becky Schlikerman says Brown died Friday at St. James Olympia Field Hospital outside Chicago. The cause of death wasn’t given.

Brown was a veteran of Chicago theater. She worked as a crisis counselor at a Chicago high school and led its drama program before winning the role of Connie on “Chicago Fire”. She played the assistant to Chief Boden, played by Eamonn Walker.

Brown also had a recurring role as nurse Kattie Welch in “Prison Break” and one-time guest spots on “Empire” and “Shameless.”

In a statement, “Chicago Fire” executive producer Dick Wolf said the show’s family is “devastated to lose one of its own.”

    Prayers to her Family, especially her daughter. Sounds like it might have been a misdiagnosis. Another site mentioned that she checked herself into the hospital earlier in the week complaining of chest pains and was released. Women you know that regardless of ethnicity, heart disease/stroke is the No. 1 killer of all women. Yes, women. There are a ton of contributing factors, high blood pressure or high cholesterol, etc…….. We need our beautiful moms, aunts, sisters, and daughters. Ladies, please get a check up and annual physical.
