Updated | The Independent Police Review Authority is investigating a police-involved shooting in Chicago that left two dead.

Around 4:25 a.m. on Saturday, an unspecified number of police officers responded to a domestic disturbance on the 4700 block of West Erie Street in Chicago.

“Upon arrival, officers were confronted by a combative subject resulting in the discharging of the officer’s weapon,” the police department said in a statement.

Chicago police did not identify the two individuals who were killed, however, relatives told NBC Chicago that the deceased include Bettie Jones and Quintonio Legrier. The Cook County medical examiner confirmed their identities to the Associated Press.

This story has been updated to include new information about the deceased.
