COLUMBUS, Ohio — Authorities say a neighbor fatally shot a couple and their 7-year-old boy and critically wounded their 12-year-old daughter, before being shot and killed by police.

Police say they were called to the scene after receiving reports of a shooting in the area.

The armed suspect, 50-year-old Barry Kirk, was shot multiple times after a brief foot chase with Columbus police officers.

Kirk was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The victims have been identified as 31-year-old John Anderson II, 30-year-old Christine Anderson and 7-year-old Landon Anderson.

The 12-year-old girl’s identity has not yet been released.

Police say there was another person inside the home at the time of the shooting, but was not shot, WCMH reports.

Authorities are working to determine a motive for the murders.
