A police stand-off in south suburban Dolton has ended with two people dead. Dolton Police and SWAT members surrounded a home at 146th and Avalon Avenue at about 8:30 Tuesday morning after getting a call of shots fired.

A man inside was apparently holding his wife hostage.

Officers talked to the man for about five hours. Then they broke down the door and threw tear gas into the home. They found the bodies of a man and woman inside, both dead of gunshot wounds.

The victims have not yet been identified.
