Two people were killed in what police suspect was a “domestic-related” attack early Sunday in South Chicago.

About 1:50 a.m., Norman Redden, 51, walked into a residence in the 8330 block of South Luella Avenue and someone opened fire, shooting him in the head, Chicago police said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The offender, who was not identified, then chased Tamera Washington, 26, to the 8200 block of South Paxton Avenue and struck her with a blunt object, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

One person was taken into custody, police said.

Area detectives were investigating.
