  • Man woman found dead with gunshot wounds on Chicago Skyway

A 49-year-old woman was killed and a 30-year-old man took his own life on the Skyway early Wednesday, police said.

It happened around four this morning at the 87th Street toll booth in the eastbound lanes headed toward Indiana.

The number of shootings on Chicago-area expressways has climbed from nine in 2012 to 54 past year, according to the state police. The vehicle eventually crashed into a wall near the toll plaza. Then police who were stationed near the gate approached the man, who shot himself. He says witnesses told investigators that the two were shouting at each other shortly before the woman was shot. The man pulled out a handgun and shot himself in the head, police said.

The Chicago Tribune reports (http://trib.in/2sApXKA ) Lisa Fisher of Broadview and Christopher M. Pena of Chicago were arguing as they traveled on the Chicago Skyway around 4:15 a.m. Wednesday. Nobody else was injured.
