from Zero Hedge:
In the latest mass shooting event which takes place just two weeks after an armed gundman killed two at a San Antonio air force base, Fox reports that a shooter is on the loose after at least seven people, some of them children, were killed at three different crime scenes in southern Ohio Friday, local news agencies report.
One of the scenes is a home east of Peebles in Pike County. Ohio’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation sent more than a dozen agents to investigate, officials tell Fox 28 in Columbus.
Authorities are searching for the suspect, according to WKRC.
Sources tell the news station investigators don’t believe the attacks were random. All seven people who died were family members, according to WKRC.
The attorney general’s office confirmed “multiple homicides” but refused to release additional information, WBNS reported.
“The mail carrier told me there’s something seriously bad going on up the road,” nearby resident Goldie Holderbran told WCPO. “I’m on the other side of [highway] 32 on Union Hill Road. I’m not very far.” The Pike County Sheriff’s Office has reportedly called for investigators from the Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
Peebles High School is on a “lockout” as a precaution, meaning that classes will continue but no one is allowed to come or go. The high school is about 10 miles from the shooting scene.
The attorney general’s office says a dozen Bureau of Criminal Investigation agents have been called to Pike County. Spokesman Dan Tierney says the Pike County sheriff’s office requested state help at 8:20 a.m. Friday.
A crime scene search unit and cyber-crimes unit were also called to the scene. The home is located on Union Hill Road in Pike County, just east of the town of Peebles and about 75 miles east of Cincinnati.
