JOLIET (AP) — Police say a man, a woman and two young children are dead in suburban Chicago in what’s being investigated as apparent slayings and suicide.

The Joliet Police Department says in a statement that the four were found dead shortly after 10:15 p.m. Wednesday after officers responded to a report of a shooting.

Police say they found the four dead on the second story of a home. An investigation is ongoing, but police say no one is being sought in connection with the deaths.

A person who answered the phone early Thursday at the department didn’t have additional information. The Will County Coroner’s Office didn’t immediately release information about the deaths.
