CHICAGO (Reuters) - Two women and one man were found shot to death and two other men were wounded on Chicago's South Side on Monday in what appears to be a domestic incident, Chicago police said.

Officers responded to a call of shots fired and found two injured men outside a residence. Police then heard shots fired inside the house, Chicago police said.

On entering, police found three people dead. The man's fatal gunshot wound appeared to be self-inflicted, police said.

Both wounded men, who did not have life-threatening injuries, were taken to hospitals, according to Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford. One had been shot while the other was a battery victim, Langford said.

The names of the dead were not immediately released. Autopsies were pending.
