Separate US shootings in two states leave 13 dead


WASHINGTON: Eight members of one family, including a teenager, were shot dead in rural Ohio on Friday (Saturday in Manila), just before gunmen killed five people in Georgia. In Ohio, seven bodies were found at three houses close to each other and an eighth was later found at a separate site, Sheriff Charles Reader told reporters. The victims were “all adults except for a male juvenile” who was 16 years old, he said, and all members of a single family. Two babies—one aged four days, the other six months—and a three-year-old child survived the shootings, he added. The authorities gave no possible motive. And, with at least one suspected gunman still on the loose, no arrests have been made.
