- A man was fatally shot Sunday morning after police were called to a domestic-related incident on the West Side and were confronted by a man who left a woman injured, according to Chicago police.
Police responded to the 3500 block of West Grenshaw Street at 8:30 a.m. for a call of a "man with a gun," Chicago police said in a statement.
After police arrived at the address they were told that a person had been shot inside the home, officials said. Police attempted to enter the home but the door was locked.
After finding the door locked, police tried to speak with the man who refused to open the door.
Police then forced their way into the home, fearing for the safety of the victim. Once they got inside of the home, police saw a man with a handgun who then refused police commands to drop the gun, police said.
The man then charged at police while pointing the gun toward the police, officials said. Police, in fear of their lives, fatally shot the man, according to the police statement.
Inside, police found a female with a gunshot wound and several stab wounds, police said. The woman was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in serious condition.
