A woman and man are dead following an apparent murder-suicide Monday afternoon on the 18th floor of the Warwick Allerton Hotel, 140 East Huron, on the Magnificent Mile.

Police responded with EMS after a hotel employee found the woman’s body in the hallway around 4:54 p.m., according to information provided by Chicago police and a source. She suffered a gunshot wound to her head and was pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, a CPD media statement said.

The Warwick Allerton Hotel, 140 East Huron, is seen on Google Street View.

While investigating the shooting, police forced their way into a room on the same floor and found a man dead from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound. Cops also found a gun in the room.

Officials have not yet identified the woman or the man.

The woman is the 16th person shot and the fourth murder victim on the Near North Side so far this year. Last year at this time, the area had six shooting victims and no murders. There were four shooting victims and one murder by strangulation at this point in 2020.
