FAMILY ARGUMENT ENDS IN 8 PERSONS GETTING KILLED IN OHIO

A family argument in Ohio has ended in the shooting deaths of eight people, including an 11-year-old, US authorities say. Two people were wounded.

One person shot five people dead in one location, then two more were killed nearby before police killed the gunman, police chief Michael Mier told WKYC-TV.

The shootings happened in the wooded, residential neighbourhood of Copley Township, outside Akron. The area remained blocked off by police on Sunday afternoon.

Sergeant Eric Goodwin did not know the conditions of the wounded, but said he believed there were no more victims.

“As far as I know, everyone’s accounted for,” he said.

He gave no more details, including how the gunman and victims were related, their names or what led to the argument.

“That’s still under investigation,” he said.

Copley Township is a town of about 14,000 people outside Akron, about 65 kilometres south of Cleveland.
