BARBERTON, Ohio (AP) — Police say two teenagers were killed in an Ohio shooting New Year's Eve that also injured their father and their father's girlfriend.

The Barberton Police Department in northeast Ohio says the shooting was committed early in the evening by unknown people trying to rob a house.

Police in the small city near Akron identified the victims Wednesday as 18-year-old Ashley Carpenter and 14-year-old David Kohler-Carpenter, both of whom were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say they are the children of 42-year-old John Kohler, who was injured in the assault along with his girlfriend, 38-year-old Ronda Blankenship. Police say both were taken to Akron hospitals.

Autopsies for the teens are scheduled for Thursday.
