(STMW) — At least ten people have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday night, and Chicago Police fatally shot a man Sunday morning on the West Side.
Officers shot and killed a man who shot and stabbed a female during a domestic argument Sunday morning in the North Lawndale neighborhood.
11th District officers responded to a call of shots fired and a man armed with a gun in the 3500 block of West Grenshaw about 8:30 a.m., according to a statement from police.
When the officers arrived, a witness told police that someone inside the home had been shot, police said. The officers tried to go inside but the door was locked.
The officers talked to a male inside, who refused to open the door, police said. The officers forced their way inside and saw a male armed with a handgun. The officers repeatedly ordered him to drop the weapon, but he ignored them and pointed it at the officers.
The officers fired, fatally shooting the man, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office could not immediately be reached to confirm the fatality.
A female was discovered inside the home with a gunshot wound and several stab wounds, police said. She was taken in serious condition to Mount Sinai Hospital.
