1 dead, 1 injured in Southwest Side shooting, home invasion

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago police said one person is dead and another was critically injured in a home invasion and double shooting in the city's Clearing neighborhood Wednesday afternoon.

Police said the shooting occurred in the 5700-block of West 64th Place just after 2 p.m. A 38-year-old and 23-year-old woman were both shot in the head, police said.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. The woman was taken to Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn in critical condition.

Police said the victims were inside a home when four unknown men came into the residence and opened fire. Neighbors said the home is a multi-unit building.

"That's really scary. We have kids that live here, and there's a lot of families on this block, so it's really scary to know that stuff like this is happening," said Ashley Armijo, neighbor.

"Shocked. It's a quiet block. There's not too much that goes on around here. It's a pretty nice, quiet neighborhood here," said Ed Speck, neighbor.

No further details about the suspects were released and the motive for the shooting remained unclear. Police did not say if anything was stolen from the home. Neighbors said they haven't noticed any problems at the home in the past.

No one is currently in custody. A police investigation is ongoing.
