In a statement Wednesday, Sycamore police say evidence suggests "one or both of the victims' deaths were self-inflicted." The investigation is continuing.
Police Chief Don Thomas says officers called to the hospital Tuesday evening after a report of gunfire in a patient room found the victims dead of gunshot wounds. Thomas says a handgun was found near the patient's body.
According to its website, Kindred Hospital is a 69-bed facility that specializes in long-term care.
Granville is located about 90 miles southwest of Chicago.
