An off-duty Chicago police officer was charged with murder Thursday after a woman was found fatally shot inside a home in Galewood, northwest.
Pierre Tyler, 29, has been charged with one count of first degree murder, Chicago police say.
Police were called to the house in the 2100 block of North Nashville Avenue at around 10:10 a.m. Thursday for a welfare check and found Andris Wofford, 29, dead from a gunshot wound to the head, said the police.
An autopsy on Friday concluded his death was a homicide, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said.
Tyler was taken into custody at the scene and subsequently charged, police said. He was removed from his police powers and is expected on Saturday in the bail court.
