IG news Update,

Oak Forest, Ill. (AP) — Police in suburban Chicago responding to a domestic incident early Friday found three gunmen who were fatally wounded outside a home and later believed to be another man. The body shot him inside the house a short time later. ,

The Oak Forest Police Department said in a news release that officers rushed to the house after being informed of the shooting and set up a perimeter outside. After a child escaped from inside the house, officers saw “smoke coming from the house and flames from the front window.”

After dousing the fire, police found the body of the fourth person, who police believe had shot at others, who were declared dead after being taken to regional hospitals.

No information was released about the victims or the person who killed them, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office said, adding that relatives were not notified and an autopsy is likely to be performed on Saturday. Police did not say whether the person found inside the house was shot like others.

During what police described a “fluid situation” with the person inside the house burning, the department issued a community alert for residents and schools in the area to shelter in place. That alert was later rescinded.

Oak Forest is about 25 miles south of Chicago
