Chicago police responded to the 2100 block of North Nashville Avenue on a well-being check around 10 a.m. on Dec. 9. Officers found a woman reportedly shot to death with a gunshot wound on her chin.

Former Chicago police officer Pierre Tyler, 29, who has been relieved of duty, was charged with one count of first-degree murder after being identified as the person who shot and killed 29-year-old Andris Wofford, authorities said.

Family told WGN News Wofford was a mother of two daughters who did not come and pick the girls up from a babysitter on Dec. 8. Family members called the police after she reportedly did not come to the door, but her car was located in the parking lot.

Neighbors allegedly heard Tyler and Wofford arguing around 7 p.m., with one neighbor reporting a loud, muffled bang sometime between 8:30 p.m. and 9 p.m., according to The Associated Press.

Tyler and Wofford had a 9-month-old child together, but Tyler reportedly had a second child with another woman, which led to an argument on Dec. 5. That is when Wofford learned he had a pending child support hearing. Wofford reportedly told several family members she was going to confront Tyler thinking Tyler had secretly married the mother of his other child, prosecutors said in court.

The couple had one prior documented domestic dispute, but charges were never filed in that case, according to The Chicago Sun-Times.
