WAUKEGAN, Ill. — Waukegan police are on the scene of a fatal shooting that occurred during a reported home invasion and burglary.

Police said officers were called to a home in the 100 block of Frolic Avenue for reports of an armed burglary in progress around 10 a.m. Tuesday

Upon arrival to the scene, officers found two men lying in the front yard. Police said the men had been shot and were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said the two men, later identified as brothers Christian Tenorio, 36, and Jimmy Tenorio, 34, both from Waukegan, forced their way into the home.

A woman yelled for help and a man, who rents the basement, reportedly came up with a loaded gun and killed Christian. The man then exchanged gunfire with Jimmy, killing him.

The woman and the man both have valid FOID cards, police said.  Neither Tenorio possessed a valid FOID.

Police determined that the single-family home was the intended target of the incident.  However, both victims and the third roommate, from the home, told police they do not know why the brothers would target the home.
