A man has been charged with fatally shooting a woman during a domestic dispute Monday in suburban North Chicago.
Officers were called for reports of gunfire about 6:40 p.m. at an apartment in the first block of Prairie View Court and found a 47-year-old woman with gunshot wounds, according to the Lake County sheriff’s office.
Montreal Porter, 48, who had previously been in a relationship with the woman was charged with her murder, the sheriff’s office said.
The two were arguing in their home when the woman attempted to run from Porter and fell outside the apartment complex where he allegedly shot her multiple times, the sheriff’s office said.

Porter remains held at the Lake County Jail on $3 million bail.
