CHICAGO -- The death of woman found dead inside her home on the Far South Side has been ruled a homicide.

Doris Moore, 60, was discovered unresponsive around 7:30 p.m. Monday in the 300 block of West 115th Street in the Roseland neighborhood.

She was rushed to Christ Hospital, when she was pronounced dead just after 8 p.m.

The Cook County Medical Examiner announced Tuesday Moore's death was a homicide and she died from a gunshot wound.

Moore lived in the house with her younger son, who was said to be asleep just before he found her on the floor.

Keith Moore, 33, says his mother seemed fine when he left for work on Monday.

Her son claims he found the home's back doors kicked in, and it was his younger brother who discovered their mother on the kitchen floor.

Moore had mobility issues due to arthritis and knee surgery two months ago.

She was a hotel employee who had to quit due to her health issues.

Nothing was apparently taken from the home.

No one is in custody.

An investigation is underway.
