The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office identified the three people found dead at an Ashburn home.

The bodies of Laquista Hickman, 37, of the 8000-block of South Ellis, and Nykole Loving, 23, of the 2000-block of 72nd Street, were found inside the home Monday in 3500-block of 79th Place. The body of Edward Prince, 36, was found outside. He is believed to have shot himself. His cousin, Sheila Prince, said he was being treated for mental illness.

Chicago Police Department SWAT teams were called to the home in the Ashburn neighborhood on Monday just before 9 a.m. That's when the bodies and two other men, whose injuries are not life-threatening, were found. The scene was secured about an hour later.

Detectives believe an argument at a graduation party Sunday may have led to the shooting.
