Woman killed in Ohio home invasion
CINCINNATI — A 22-year-old woman was found dead at the scene of a home invasion near Cincinnati where two gunmen opened fire, wounding eight people, including three children and a pregnant woman who had revealed the gender of her child at a party Saturday night.
Colerain Township Police Chief Mark Denney said at a news conference Sunday that none of the eight people wounded appeared to have life-threatening injuries, including the children, who are ages 8, 6 and 2.
The 22-year-old was identified as Autum Garrett of Huntington, Ind.
Denney said the two gunmen who fled on foot haven’t been identified or arrested. He wouldn’t discuss details of the investigation into the shootings.
The pregnant woman has told WXIX-TV that she lost her child, a boy, after being shot in the leg.
The gunmen opened fire with handguns in the living room of the house where friends and family had gathered for a gender-reveal party, Denney said.
There were no indications of a forced entry by the gunmen, who entered the house through the front door, Denney said. He said it was unclear why the victims were shot.
