Man fatally shot in NW Side home, police say

CHICAGO (WLS) -- A man was fatally shot in an apartment on Chicago's Northwest Side.

The shooting occurred at about 10:30 a.m. Sunday in the 5700 block of North Spaulding Avenue.

Another man was taken to Swedish Covenant Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police had initially said the man who was killed was a burglar, but retracted that narrative late Sunday.

The man's identity was not immediately identified.

Meanwhile neighbors are hoping this is an isolated incident.

"In this neighborhood this is the first time I can remember anything like this or such a police presence," said Huseyin Abiva, who lives across the street.

No further details were immediately available.

Police are investigating.
