BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) - Police say a Chicago-area woman and her father are in critical condition after they were shot by her former girlfriend, who then fatally shot herself in the head.

Bridgeview Police Chief Walter Klimek identified the dead woman as 28-year-old Erika Aguirre. The Cook County Sheriff’s Office says Aguirre was an employee for four years, working at the jail’s intake division. Klimek says Aguirre and a 27-year-old woman had been in a relationship for four years but had recently broken up.

Klimek says Aguirre broke into the home southwest of Chicago about 11:30 p.m. Sunday and shot the 52-year-old man twice. The former girlfriend was then shot numerous times. Klimek says both are in critical condition at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.
