Police responded to calls of shots fired on the 8th floor of the apartment building at 1000 North LaSalle shortly after 10 p.m. Wednesday. They found a 24-year-old woman in the hallway with gunshot wounds to her torso and buttocks, according to a CPD media statement. A 26-year-old man, identified by the medical examiner as Sean Bold, was also found shot inside the building.

Bold, who listed a home address in the 1000 block of North LaSalle, died at 2:20 p.m. Friday. The medical examiner determined that he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

The woman was listed in critical condition at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
