A sister and brother killed in a domestic-related shooting that left two other people critically wounded early Thursday in their South Chicago neighborhood home have been identified as Emoni House and Elijah House.

The four people were shot by a “known suspect” in the 8000 block of South Shore Drive about 12:10 a.m., according to Chicago Police.

The suspect got into argument with one of the victims and it turned physical, police said. He then left the home, but returned with a gun and shot all four victims.

Emoni House, 20, and her brother, Elijah House, 16, were pronounced dead at the scene, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Emoni House suffered multiple gunshot wounds, and Elijah House suffered a gunshot wound to the back, according to the medical examiner’s office. Both lived on the block where the shooting happened.

A 42-year-old woman was shot in the chest; and a 30-year-old woman was also shot, police said. Both were taken in critical condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

The shooting was domestic-related, police said, but no further details were provided.

No one was in custody as of Monday morning as Area South detectives investigate.
