“When officers responded to a call of suspicious activity at the home they were allowed inside by a 17-year-old relative of the victims who had called police, Maywood Police Chief Elijah Willis said.
“‘Police see a female and a male unresponsive inside the house,’ Willis said. ‘The victims were apparently bleeding from some parts of the body.’
“‘Unfortunately both individuals were dead on the scene,’ Willis said.
“Firefighters responded there about 1:30 p.m. for a shooting, said Maywood Fire Chief Sonya Thompson.
“Willis declined to define the relationship of the two people.
‘The community is not at danger,’ Willis said.” VFP
