A woman who shot a man after he stabbed her multiple times Thursday afternoon in Lawndale acted in self-defense and will not be charged, police said.
About 4:05 p.m. Oct. 5, the 25-year-old man was shot in the chest when he stabbed the 25-year-old woman multiple times in the 4000 block of West 21st Street, Chicago Police said.
The woman was taken in serious condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, and the man was pronounced dead at the scene at 4:48 p.m., authorities said.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified him as Pleasure Cardell Singleton Jr.
The stabbing was believed to be a domestic incident, police said, but the nature of the relationship between the two wasn’t released.
Charges against the woman were rejected when the shooting was ruled self-defense, police said Saturday.
