CHICAGO — A Chicago police officer has been arrested after a 29-year-old woman was found shot to death Thursday morning on the Northwest Side.
At around 10:10 a.m., police responded to the 2100 block of North Nashville on a well-being check. When officers arrived, a 29-year-old woman, later identified as Andris Wofford, was discovered shot to death with a gunshot wound to the chin.
Police arrested an off-duty CPD officer following the shooting and he has been relieved of police powers. Charges are pending.
Family told WGN News Wofford was a mother of two and they were babysitting her daughters Wednesday when she did not come and pick the girls up.
“Very outgoing, loved life, so this is the reason why, we just hoping that this does not get swept under the rug because we know she ain’t do nothing to herself,” Kenya Brown, the woman’s aunt, said. “She’s thinking about Christmas the things she was going to do, they were going to celebrate Christmas early — this Saturday. So there is no way, there is no way.”
Family called police after she did not come to the door, but her car was located in the parking lot.
“He was the last one in,” family said. “Luckily the community she stays in has cameras all around.”
The officer is being questioned by Area 5 detectives. Family told WGN News he is the father of Wofford’s youngest daughter.
