One of the victims in the “execution style” killing of eight family members in Ohio on Friday was shot nine times, while other victims also suffered multiple gunshot wounds, authorities said on Tuesday.
Two of the victims were shot five times, one person suffered four gunshot wounds and others were shot one, two or three times, ABC News reported, citing local coroners offices.
Seven of the eight victims—all members of the Rhoden family—were found dead in three homes on the same road in Peebles, a rural Ohio village. One victims was found in the nearby town of Piketon, ABC News reported.
Police have not yet identified a motive in the killings, nor have they released a suspect description.
