Officials investigating a triple murder home invasion in a Chicago suburb will not comment on reports that a prime suspect has been arrested.

“Right now we don’t have anything to say at the moment,” Paul Darrah, spokesman for the Dupage County State’s Attorney’s Office told CNN. “Details will be forthcoming.”

Darrah did confirm that three people were killed early Tuesday morning in a home in Darien. The victims were Jeff and Laurie Kramer, and their 20-year-old son Michael, according to published reports. The couple’s daughter hid in a closet and called 911 during the attack, local newspapers said.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the killings are the first in Darien in 15 years.

The U.S. Census Bureau reports Darien has a population of about 22,000.
