A northwest Indiana man shot a woman before apparently killing himself after a domestic argument Wednesday morning in the South Side Burnside neighborhood, police said.

A 27-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman were involved in “an apparent domestic dispute” at 10:14 a.m. in the 9100 block of South Cottage Grove, according to Chicago Police.

The man, identified as Christopher A. Sharpe Jr. of Merrillville, shot the woman multiple times, then apparently shot himself in the head, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the medical examiner’s office. Autopsy results were pending further investigation.

The woman was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in serious condition, police said.
