A man was in custody after one woman was fatally shot and another woman was stabbed in a home invasion Friday afternoon in the South Side Bronzeville neighborhood.

Two people entered a home about 11 a.m. in the 100 block of East 37th Place, according to Chicago Police. While they were inside the home, they fatally shot a 65-year-old woman and stabbed an 18-year-old woman multiple times.

The older woman was dead at the scene, police said.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office identified her as Peggy Goodman. Her death was ruled a homicide.

The younger woman was taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition, police said.

A 31-year-old man was in custody in connection with the attack and charges against him were pending Saturday morning, police said. The other suspect remained at large.
