UPI

CHICAGO — Chicago police said the suspects in the slayings of two people in a North Side apartment were possibly involved in other drug-related homicides.

One suspect was killed and two others were arrested Saturday in a shootout with police that left one officer hospitalized with a leg wound.

The 39-year-old officer was in good condition at an Evanston hospital Sunday.

A law enforcement source told the Chicago Sun-Times the suspects were being checked for potential involvement in other killings in the past several months that were the work of a "very bad crew."
