4 shot to death in Butler County apartment


WEST CHESTER, Ohio (AP) – Three women and a man have been found dead at an apartment complex in Ohio where multiple shots were fired, and police say they haven’t identified a suspect.

West Chester Township Police Chief Joel Herzog said at a news conference Monday that the four who died were family members who lived in the same apartment at the Lakefront at West Chester complex. Another family member called 911 saying he returned to find his family on the ground, bleeding.

Herzog says it’s too early to suggest a motive and it doesn’t appear that there was any return fire. He said Butler County’s coroner will determine the cause of death and release the victims’ identities.

Herzog said the shooting appeared “isolated” and he doesn’t believe there’s any danger to the community.
