BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. (AP) — Five people have been found dead at a home in suburban Chicago in what police said Wednesday was a likely “domestic-related incident.”

The Buffalo Grove Police Department said officers were sent around 11 a.m. to a single-family residence on Acacia Terrace following a call for a wellbeing check on an adult female. The officers forced their way inside the home and found five people dead, police said.

“The preliminary investigation indicates this was a domestic-related incident, and there is no threat to the public,” the department said in a news release.

The department said the names of the dead were being withheld until relatives could be notified and pending the coroner’s examination.

The Lake County Major Crime Task Force is assisting in the ongoing investigation.
