The shooting happened in the town of Ryan, which has fewer than 400 residents. The woman told authorities her boyfriend was shot during an argument with a man she didn’t know.
Officers found the boyfriend’s body in the apartment’s kitchen and living room area. Investigators determined the shooting happened in the bedroom after finding a bullet casing and a gun with blood on the barrel — plus there were no tire tracks in the fresh snow outside to indicate someone else had been in the apartment.
Danielle Shanta Weiner of Ryan has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of 27-year-old Devon Hierrazuela of Oak Lawn, Illinois.
