FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Two women killed over the weekend in a suburban St. Louis home break-in were likely the victims of a domestic violence dispute, police said.

The killings happened around 7 p.m. Saturday, when two people forced their way into a house in Ferguson, police said. Investigators said the break-in led to a fight between the intruders and residents and ended with two women in the home being shot to death.

Officials did not immediately release the identities of the women killed. Police said they believe they know who at least one person involved is, but had not announced any arrests by Monday morning.
