A man and woman were fatally shot Wednesday morning in the North Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side.

Officers responded to a call of shots fired about 8:56 a.m. in the 1400 block of South Kenneth, where they found two unresponsive people with gunshot wounds, according to Chicago Police.

The woman, identified as 67-year-old Collette Cammon, was found inside the home, while the man, 61-year-old Johnny McQueen, was found just outside the home, police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said.

They both were pronounced dead at the scene at 9:23 a.m., authorities said. They lived in the same block where they were found.

Autopsies Thursday found that McQueen died of gunshot wounds to his head while Cammon died of multiple gunshot wounds, and both of their deaths were ruled homicides, the medical examiner’s office said.

No one was in custody as Area Central detectives investigated.
