Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - NATIONAL -

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.
