SWAT Surrounds Far South Side Home
CHICAGO – A murder suspect was barricaded by SWAT units several miles away from where his girlfriend, her father, and another relative were killed.
The suspect known to them fired shots at them in what appears to be a domestic-related incident. The shootings occurred both inside and outside of the home. The father was shot in the head on the sidewalk, and the daughter and girlfriend of the suspect was shot in the head inside of the home. The relative was shot in the back and later pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital.
The SWAT units were called at about 4:15 AM to a home in the Fernwood neighborhood and were immediately seen surrounding the suspect inside the home. Shots appeared to have been exchanged shortly before 9:30 AM.
