2 dead on South Side after apparent home invasion

Two men were found dead Sunday morning after an apparent home invasion in the South Chicago neighborhood, authorities said.

Authorities said the men, 18 and 35, were apparently shot to death during a home invasion in the 9100 block of South Commercial Avenue on the South Side.

The men were found by police just before 5 a.m. and pronounced dead on the scene.

The Cook County medical examiner's office has been notified of the deaths but is not yet releasing details about the dead. The office is withholding information at the request of the Chicago Police Department, according to an agency spokesman.

The Chicago Police Department's office of news affairs wouldn't say why that request was made.

No suspects were in custody as of 8:20 a.m.

Hours earlier, a 35-year-old man was shot in the ankle Saturday night during a robbery in the North Side's Ravenswood neighborhood, authorities said.

About 10:55 p.m., the man became involved in an argument with several other people as he stood in an alley in the 5000 block of North Lincoln Avenue, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said.

Someone took out a handgun and shot the man in the ankle. He was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, where his condition was stabilized.

Another man, 27, was shot in the head about 11:45 p.m. in the West Rogers Park neighborhood.

Police said the man was wounded during a gang dispute and is in critical condition. The attack happened in the 6400 block of North Fairfield Avenue, about a block north and east of the intersection of Devon and California avenues. | Twitter: @ChicagoBreaking
