- A seven-year-old boy and his parents were shot dead inside their Ohio home by a man who police said lived across the street.

John E. Anderson, 31, his wife Christina Chaffin Anderson, 30, and their son, Landon Anderson, seven, were found dead by police inside their Hilltop home on Monday, officials said.

Their daughter, identified by The Columbus Dispatch as 12-year-old Makyleigh Anderson, was also shot and was rushed to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in critical condition, police said.

All the victims suffered multiple gunshot wounds, the Associated Press reported.

A fifth, uninjured person was taken from the house, AP wrote.

Police were responding to a 911 call made by a woman about 5 p.m. who said that her husband had been shot by an intruder who was still inside their home on South Terrace Avenue, the Dispatch wrote.
