Two Found Dead in Calumet ParkPolice are questioning a person of interest tonight as they try to piece together who shot two people outside a Calumet Park home.

The two people were found dead early Saturday in the 12600 block of Loomis Street in the south suburb, according Calumet Park Police Assistant Chief Kenneth Mann.

The Cook County medical examiner’s office did not have details of how the two may have died.

Danielle Johnson identified one of the victims as her friend, Karif Thomas. Johnson said they were friends, but fondly referred to each other as brother and sister. Thomas was her daughter’s godfather.

“The love was always there. He was always somebody I could call on and talk to and confide in and trust with my life and my child’s,” Johnson said.

Johnson said the shock of his sudden death just hasn’t set in. She said Karif was a father of four.

Police said the second victim is a female, but they would not release her identity, saying their investigation is ongoing.
