Man killed woman, then himself on Chicago Skyway

Man, woman found dead with gunshot wounds on Chicago Skyway

The shooting prompted an early-morning closure of part of the expressway that connects the city with Indiana.

The number of shootings on Chicago-area expressways has climbed from nine in 2012 to 54 previous year, according to the state police.

Police say the shooting, heard around 4:10 a.m.in the 8800 block of the southbound expressway, appeared to be a murder-suicide. While the vehicle was still moving, the man allegedly jumped out and started shooting at the woman.

Pena, 30, got out of the auto while it was still moving, and fired several shots at Fischer, striking her in the body.

The auto traveled a short distance before it crashed. The woman was found with several gunshot wounds and the man was found with a gunshot wound to the head. Nobody else was injured. He says witnesses told investigators that the two were shouting at each other shortly before the woman was shot.

Guglielmi says investigators believe the two were married but are trying to verify their identities. Police were investigating it as a possible murder-suicide. He then got back into the vehicle and shot himself in the head.

Police cordoned off the area where the Chrysler had crashed and blocked traffic east of the Dan Ryan Expressway while conducting an investigation.
