Two people were placed into custody early Friday after a woman was found shot to death in West Pullman, prompting a standoff with a SWAT team that lasted more than three hours.

The woman was found lying on a sidewalk in the 12200 block of South Union Avenue with a gunshot wound to the head just after midnight, Chicago police said. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified her as 26-year-old Tiffany Curry. An autopsy conduced Saturday ruled Curry’s death a homicide.

Witnesses told officers they saw a man, possibly the shooter, run into a nearby building, according to police. SWAT units responded and remained on the scene until about 3:30 a.m., when two men were taken into custody, police said.

A second victim, a 26-year-old man, suffered a gunshot wound to the hip and was treated and released from St. Bernard Hospital, police said. He would not tell officers who shot him and would not provide information about the shooting.

The incident may be domestic-related, police said.
