DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Four people have been fatally shot in an Ohio neighborhood, and authorities say the 39-year-old suspect was arrested in Kansas.

Police in Montgomery County’s Butler Township said officers were sent shortly after noon Friday after a report of shots fired.

Chief John Porter said four victims were found at “multiple crime scenes.” All were pronounced dead at the scene.

The motive for the shooting wasn’t yet clear.

Police announced late Saturday on Facebook that the suspect, 39-year-old Stephen Marlow, was arrested in Lawrence, Kansas. It’s believed he fled the scene of the shooting in an SUV.

Earlier Saturday, officials identified the victims as 82-year-old Clyde Knox, 78-year-old Eva Knox, 41-year-old Sarah Anderson and a 15-year-old girl whose name wasn’t released.
