CHICAGO (WLS/CNN) - Police said a woman killed her 9-month-old granddaughter because the girl wouldn't stop crying.

The 52-year-old woman also tried to kill herself.

Police say the woman is in custody at Mount Sinai hospital. Published reports say the woman

Monday morning. She then tried to kill herself.

"When I came out, I heard a young lady in front of the door, and she was crying, 'When am I going to see my mom?' or something like that," said neighbor Virginia Otero. "I think they told her to go inside because she was in shock."

Sources said the baby girl's name was Rose Herrera. Neighbors say a couple lived there with two grown daughters, each of whom had a young child. There were no problems of which any of them knew.

"I can't, I can't believe it," neighbor Raul Chavez said. "I knew them. I knew them real good because we would help out each other."

Police said both the baby and the woman were found by another relative.
