CHICAGO (AP) - Authorities say two people were found fatally shot inside an SUV on a Chicago area highway.

Illinois State Police released a statement Sunday saying the shooting occurred around 4 a.m. in the northbound lanes of Interstate 90 on the northwest side.

Police say a silver Chevrolet Tahoe stopped in a lane and a male driver and a female passenger were found inside. They were found unresponsive and with gunshot wounds to the head.

They were identified as 43-year-old Eric Taylor and 36-year-old Camille Cooley, both of Waukegan.

Police say a black semi-automatic weapon was found on the driver’s side floor.

All local lanes of I-90 were shut down for the investigation. Authorities did not immediately have other information.

WLS-TV reports it’s the 18th Chicago area expressway shooting this year.
