AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Police are searching for answers in the shooting deaths of four young adults in the basement of a northeast Ohio townhome.

Names of the victims in the Thursday shooting haven't been released by police, but family members at the scene said the bodies had been identified. The victims were two men and two women. Police said they had all been shot in the head at close range.

A friend at the Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority complex told reporters he went into the townhome just before 3 p.m. Thursday and saw shell casings on the floor before discovering the bodies in the basement.

The housing complex is in the Chapel Hill section of Akron, about 35 miles south of Cleveland.

Police spent Thursday night collecting evidence and talking to neighbors.
