CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago police say four people were shot to death and one was critically injured at a home on the city's far South Side.

Officer Jose Estrada with the police department said officers responded at about 12:40 p.m. Saturday to a call that someone had been shot.

When they arrived, four people were dead and the fifth was critically injured. A 2-year-old child was not injured.

Estrada said police do not yet know exactly when the people were shot, the circumstances of the shooting or the names of the victims. He says no arrests have been made.

The shootings come near the end of the deadliest years in recent history in Chicago, where there have been more than 700 homicides.
