CHICAGO (AP) - Authorities in Chicago say police found three people who were shot dead on the city’s Southeast Side.

The Cook County medical examiner identified one of those killed in the shooting about 5:30 p.m. Sunday in the city’s East Side neighborhood as 22-year-old Narcisco J. Ledesma of Chicago. The medical examiner and police said the other victims are a 17-year-old boy and a 24-year-old woman whose identities weren’t immediately released. The medical examiner’s office said autopsies were planned Monday.

Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi (goo-lee-EHL’-mee) said Monday morning that the shooting initially was reported as possible self-defense involving a burglary. However, he said detectives have been investigating “and there are some inconsistencies in what was told to police.”

Guglielmi says the incident is under investigation.
