    Three people are in police custody in the wake of a shooting that left three people, including a 9-year-old girl, dead.

    "We received a lot of anonymous tips from people in the community," said Harvey police spokeswoman Sandra Alvarado, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    Charges are pending.

    Officers responded to a call from a second floor apartment in the 300 block of West 151st Place, in Harvey, around 10 p.m. Sunday. Officers found four victims inside. 

    The 16-year old male, later identified as Shaquille Davis, was pronounced dead at the scene. The 28-year-old female, identified as Donysha Stovall, and her 9-year-old daughter Clarisma Torrey, were pronounced dead at Ingalls, according to Avarado.

    Stovall's 4-year-old son was also shot, but survived the incident. He was transported to Advocate Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn where he remains in stable condition, according to Sandra Avarado, Harvey Police Department spokeswoman.

    Harvey Police said there was no sign of forced entry. They believe the offender could be familiar with the family and that narcotics were involved, according to Avarado.

    Stovall's father, Dyland Weather, this morning offered a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of whomever shot his daughter and grandchildren.

    In the meantime, police are seeking charges against Stovall's boyfriend, and the father of 16-year-old Shaquille Davis, for drug possession. Drugs were found in the apartment where the murder took place.

    The boyfriend is not considered a suspect in the slayings, police said, but believe his drug-related activities are involved.
