There was a Chicago shooting earlier this week during an O'Hare home invasion on the Northwest Side. The incident took place on West Catherine Avenue.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Two people have been charged after an 80-year-old man, who was badly injured in a Northwest Side home invasion, fought off his attackers.

Mansfield Wallace, 51, of Evanston has been charged with home invasion causing injury, aggravated battery of a victim over 60 and aggravated battery causing great bodily harm, Chicago police said early Wednesday morning.

Tabitha Hemphill, 31, of Chicago was charged with home invasion causing great bodily harm.

CPD said the two were arrested Monday in the 7400-block of West Talcott Avenue after being identified as the suspects who, less than an hour earlier, forced their way into a home in the 8500-block of West Catherine Avenue.

While in the home, they battered an 80-year-old man, causing serious injuries, CPD said.
