Authorities still are searching for a suspect, but have canceled the missing-child alert for a 7-year-old boy who was sought following an incident at a mobile home in southern OH that left three people dead and a fourth hospitalized. Police officers from all village agencies, the Ohio State Highway Patrol, the Ashland KY Police, and the Huntington Police K9 unit assisted in the search for Lawson but he was able to evade capture in the darkness.
A fourth victim was found in a residence about 1/4 mile north on state Route 93, at a relative's residence.
The surviving victim alerted police that 8-year-old Devin Holston was missing from the home.
According to the Lawrence County Sheriff's Department, 8-year-old Devin Holston lived at a home in the 15000 block of State Route 93 in Pedro where three adults were found shot to death at about 7pm, Wednesday.
As part of an ongoing investigation, The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office is now attempting to locate Devin Holston.
Anybody with information is asked to call the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office at 740-532-3525.
Lawless told the newspaper that all those involved were "related in some way".
Record-tying Hurricane Ophelia moving northeast in Atlantic
Ophelia is the tenth consecutive Atlantic tropical story to attain hurricane strength this season, the Met Office said. A hurricane brewing over the Atlantic threatens to bring strong winds on Monday - and a mini-heatwave.
Investigators are searching for Aaron Lawson, 23, as a person of interest.
Lawson crashed his vehicle into a ditch and then fled on foot.
None of the dead or injured has been identified. The sheriff's office said all three people had gunshot wounds.
Lawson was last seen on foot near the scene.
Lawless said schools in the Rock Hill district were closed Thursday because of the attacks. But investigators have no indication of a connection between the cases, Del Greco said.
The Lawrence County sheriff's office and the state attorney general's office wouldn't immediately confirm Thursday whether Devin Holston was found safe.
