Multiple people were found dead in a home in Pike County, Ohio, law enforcement officials said on Friday, with a television station reporting that up to seven were killed.


The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation's crime scene search unit and cyber crimes unit were headed to the scene about 75 miles (120 km) east of Cincinnati, the Ohio Attorney General's office said.

No one has been taken into custody, according to the office, which oversees the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation. It did not release information on how many people had been killed but WKRC television in Cincinnati said seven were dead.

"We are not aware of there being an active shooter," said Jill Del Greco, a spokeswoman for the attorney general's office.

The Chillicothe Gazette newspaper showed a picture of three ambulances lined up along a wooded and rural road. It said there were multiple crime scenes, citing a sheriff's office.

Sheriff's offices did not respond to requests to comment.
