Officers responded to a domestic-related call of shots fired in the 800 block of North Wolcott Avenue just after 5 p.m., a police spokesman said.

They were identified as Loretta Purcell, 82, and Christopher Kelly Purcell, 58, who lived in the same block where they were found dead, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.
