Terrible news.
It also seems to me that they're keeping a tight lid on information about this right now.
The BBC is reporting a number of dead, without any official confirmation. Seems there is no official word on any of this right now, nothing but statements from locals being repeated by US news.

I really don't want to say it, but I think this is going to turn out to be worse than initial reports are suggesting. There seems to be a stunned silence going on.

Thankfully he's not.

Looks like this was a murder suicide. Someone just said that there was no report of an active shooter in the area and they would not be there standing in the road if there was. Seems as though someone got a little carried away in their reporting of that aspect based on the schools closing (which would be an automatic response to such an event and doesn't mean there's an ongoing threat).

Very sad indeed.

This seems really bizarre to me:

Multiple search warrants will be served at the three crimes scenes on two properties. The pieces of land are between half a mile and a mile apart, and are believed to belong to the parents and grandparents of the children who were killed, according to WCPO.

At this time, “there is no suspect,” Lieutenant Michael Preston with the Ross County Sheriff’s Office said without elaborating. "I can't speak to anything, any information about the case until we get some more," Preston said. "We don't know what we've got until we get the search warrants served."

Why would they need search warrants for crime scenes?

Something about this smells really strange. Some kind of cult?

Perhaps the deaths did not occur inside the homes, but along a road.

Shootings with multiple fatalities were reported along a road in rural Ohio on Friday morning, but details on the number of deaths and the whereabouts of the suspect or suspects weren't immediately clear.

Very creepy and so sad.

Yes, you might be right. It is a terrible thing for sure.

They're now saying another body has been found, and these killings were "execution style".

Unfortunately, with the state of US media right now, it's hard to know what's actual fact and what's assumption and drama being added by broadcasters.

I have to say that from the random and varied statements coming out of the area they really aren't handling this will or with any consistency. Some are saying there is an "active shooter", others are saying there's "no threat to the public", the schools were on lock down but now aren't...

They need to sort out what they're telling their public, if I lived in the area I would be damn angry at the way they're mismanaging this and not getting any consistent information out to the community.

Tell it to the people who were murdered today.

What am I telling them? That they were killed illegally?

Do gun grabbers really have such a problem waiting for information before leaping to conclusions that they need to climb on top of still warm remains to try and be right?

Clearly that's a resounding "yes."

Sending regards.

There was just a press conference shared on Chillicothe Gazette.

when they find out the perpetrator was of middle eastern descent, MSM will label it as a terrorist attack, for now its a 'gunman' or a 'loner'

fyi: perp is almost certainly not middle eastern, otherwise the headline and topic thread title and news coverage would be considerably different.

the argument is about guns now not religion in this case.... funny...

To clarify a few comments above based on old information...
As of now:

Seven adults and one 16-year-old boy were found dead in four locations Friday. Three children were found, and were not injured. They are 4 days old, 6 months old and 3 years old. Authorities said the shooter is still at large, and there could be more than one shooter.

The Rhoden family was targeted, and authorities urged other family members to be cautious. There is not a threat to the general public, Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine said.

Thanks. Weird story, I'm guessing internal family feud or some weird longstanding rivalry between the family and another/drugs.

I'm glad the kids were OK (save for the teen) but this is incredibly sad news. Takes a special kind of monster to murder a woman sleeping with her child next to her.

I really don't want to sound insensitive (seriously when it's something like this), but when you have a family of 100 people that need to be notified (so I'm thinking fairly close by) you're bound to have a crazy or two.

Hope they find whoever is responsible and they actually get punished.

We've been over this to the point of redundancy here on ATS, and abound. I won't bother going over it again. You people that believe a law will prevent crazy people from obtaining guns are not listening and won't bother to listen, so it's pointless.

News flash, crazy f**ks will always find a way to obtain weapons to kill, if the desire to kill, or snap, or whatever the hell. All the laws in the world won't change that, those laws merely make more victims because....unarmed people are victims waiting to happen, period. There is no argument to be made otherwise (besides by those not seeing the plain truth that is blatantly obvious to those of us that choose not to be victims and give ourselves and our family's a fighting chance)...

.....good day.

Wow, this just horrible. WTH went on that warranted (in the killer's/killers' mind) doing this?!
My husband has a cousin who grew up in the area, so he's familiar with it to a point. His guess is drug vendetta/turf war, being that it's apparently a long-time drug hotbed around Peebles. Even his cousin's banking on drugs being the root cause, but also said to honestly consider a serious Hatfield/McCoy-style old family rivalry, too (this stuff still happens??)

That would explain some comments I have seen on various news sites.
The comments were along the line of "follow the drugs".
