Possible suspect in killing of 3 barricaded in Chicago home

CHICAGO (AP) — A possible suspect in the killing of three people has barricaded himself in a home on Chicago’s far South Side.

Police spokeswoman Laura Amezaga said Thursday that SWAT team members have surrounded the home in the Fernwood neighborhood.

She says a man inside is a possible suspect in the killings of three people Wednesday night in the West Englewood neighborhood.

Amezaga says the shooter knew the victims, but she did not have information about their relationship.

She says a 30-year-old woman and a 50-year-old man were shot in the head, and a 26-year-old woman was shot in the back.

Deputy police Superintendent John Escalante says the victims appear to have been members of the same family.

Escalante says police don’t think there is any threat to the broader community.
