CHICAGO (WLS) — A person of interest is in custody in connection with a fatal stabbing on a CTA Red Line train on Chicago’s South Side.
A woman was stabbed in the neck around 12:30 p.m. on a southbound train in the 200-block of West 47th Street, Chicago police said. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Police have not yet released her name.
First Deputy Superintendent John Escalante said the man taken into custody knew the woman and the incident was “domestic in nature.” He said witnesses who saw them arguing before the stabbing heard them talking about a child.
The man was arrested on the train platform without struggle, Escalante said.
Escalante said there was no apparent threat to any other CTA passengers at the time.
Red Line trains bypassed the 47th Street station as police investigated. As of 3 p.m., the CTA said normal train service had resumed with residual delays.
The Knicks and Bulls have agreed to a deal that will send former All-Star point guard Derrick Rose to New York, sources told ESPN.
The Knicks are sending center Robin Lopez, guard Jose Calderon and guard Jerian Grant to Chicago, which is shipping guard Justin Holiday, Rose and a 2017 second-round pick back to New York, sources said.
The Chicago Tribune first reported the deal.
ESPN reported last week that the Knicks had internal discussions recently about trading for Rose, the NBA MVP for the 2010-11 season.
Both Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek and general manager Steve Mills had said that the team was interested in upgrading their point guard position in the offseason.
Rose will be a free agent after the 2016-17 season. He averaged 16.4 points on 42.7 percent shooting and 4.7 assists in 66 games in 2015-16.
The six-year veteran has appeared in just 50 percent of the Bulls’ regular-season games over the past four years because of various injuries, including two major knee surgeries.
The Bulls have scheduled a 5 p.m. ET news conference Wednesday.
