Three people were shot, two of them fatally, during what police are investigating as a “domestic dispute” in southwest suburban Woodridge.
Police said officers responded at 11:57 p.m. Monday to a report of shots fired at a residence in the 7700 block of Fox Street in what appeared to be a Hawthorne Ridge apartment.
Officers found a man and woman in the living room, police said, with fatal gunshot wounds. A second woman, found at the back of the residence with a non-fatal gunshot wound, was transported to a local trauma center and remains in critical condition.
Police said a preliminary investigation indicates the deceased man and woman were married. She recently relocated to the home several days ago, police said, after a domestic dispute with her husband.
A handgun was located at the scene.
"The public is not at risk relating to this incident," Woodridge police said in a statement.
Neighbors said the victim was a young mother of three.
"The lady I saw they brought out is a sweet girl, a good girl," said Kerthennia Huff. "All I know is she goes to work and minds her own business. I'm sorry this happened to her."
Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to contact the Woodridge Police Department at 630-719-4740.
