Authorities discovered four people fatally shot at a residence on Chicago’s far South Side. Another person remains in critical condition, while a 2-year-old toddler who was in the home at the time of the shooting remained unharmed, officials said.

Chicago Police Spokesman Jose Estrada said officers responded to a home on 100 block of West 105th St in the Fernwood section of the city after receiving calls of a shooting around 12:40 p.m. Saturday and discovered the four dead victims described as two males and two females appearing to be in their mid 20’s, early 30’s.

Estrada said relatives identified two of the victims as Elijah Jackson and his sister Shacora Jackson, WGNTV reported.

Although officials said investigators are working to ascertain the exact time, and circumstances surrounding the fatal shooting. Police believe the shooting wasn’t a random event and suspect a family dispute of some sort as a possible motive.

Emergency responders transported the unharmed toddler to Roseland Hospital for safety precautions, and a female victim remains in critical condition.

“At this point, everything is still unfolding, we have more questions than answers – we have no offender information at all,” said Deputy Chicago Police Department Chief Kevin Navarro.

The Police chief said officers were combing the home on Chicago’s Far South Side for evidence.

The shooting deaths mark the end of the deadliest year in recent Chicago history which has seen over 700 homicides.
