CHICAGO — A man and woman died from gunshot wounds Sunday morning after a triple shooting in West Chatham that may be domestic-related.

Just before 6:45 a.m., police were dispatched to the 8300 block of South LaSalle on the report of a shooting.

When they arrived, officers discovered a man and woman lying in the street suffering from gunshot wounds.

After an investigation, police determined a physical altercation took place between numerous people. During the altercation, police said a 40-year-old man shot a 28-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman. 

After the 28-year-old was shot, he reportedly returned fire and struck the 40-year-old.

A witness told WGN she heard around six gunshots. When she ran outside, the woman saw the victims laying in the street.

Another neighbor was a nurse and attempted CPR before both the man and woman were transported in grave condition. They were pronounced dead at University of Chicago Hospital.

The 40-year-old was transported to Christ Hospital in good condition.

The shooting remains under investigation by Area South detectives.
