Three people were shot to death Sunday evening in the East Side neighborhood on the Far South Side.

Two males and one female, whose ages were unknown, were shot at 5:32 p.m. in the 10200 block of South Ewing, according to Chicago Police. They all were pronounced dead at the scene.

A homeowner shot the three people after they broke into his home, the police source said. He had a valid Firearm Owner's Identification card.

The homeowner was being questioned late Sunday by police, but police believe the shooting was self-defense and are not expected to file charges.
