Chicago police say the bodies of six people have been found inside a home on the city's South Side.

Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says investigators believe all six who were found on Thursday were homicide victims, but they do not yet know the cause of death. He says he does not yet know the identities or the ages of the victims or whether any of the victims were children.

He says police entered the house after receiving a call to check the welfare of the occupants of a home in Chicago's Gage Park neighborhood.
