There are ‘multiple crime scenes’ in Piketon, Ohio

A number of people have been found dead at a home in Ohio, officials say.

The Ohio Attorney General’s office could not provide the number of dead or how they were killed.

More than a dozen officials from multiple state agencies are currently en route to multiple crime scenes in Piketon, Ohio, south of Columbus.

Officials are not aware of any arrests or an “active shooter” situation, said Dan Tierney, spokesman for the Ohio Attorney General.

Local schools Peebles Elementary and Peebles High School are on “lockout” – no-one goes in or out – due to the ongoing situation in Piketon, a spokesperson for Adams County Ohio Valley Schools said.
