At least four people were found with fatal gunshot wounds Friday in Butler Township in Dayton, Ohio, police said. According to sister station WLWT WDTN, police were called to the 7200 block of Hardwicke Place at around 11.30am to reports of gunfire. When officers arrived at the scene, they found a total of four victims at multiple crime scenes with gunshot wounds, Butler Township Police Chief John Porter said. All four victims died at the scene, police said. According to WDTN, the four victims were identified as Clyde Knox, 82, Eva Knox, 78, Sarah Anderson, 41, and a 15-year-old woman. According to a family member at the scene, officers found two of the victims dead at a house in Hardwicke Place. The two would be a mother and her 15-year-old daughter. Neighbors in the area said the other two victims of the shooting were an older couple, WDTN reported. Police have sent information on a person of interest possibly linked to the shooting. Officials are looking for Stephen Alexander Marlow, 39. He is described as 5ft 11in, weighing around 160lbs, with brown hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing shorts and a yellow t-shirt, police said. On Saturday, Butler Township said Marlow remained the prime suspect and law enforcement was aggressively pursuing all leads to bring him into safe custody. Officials say reports indicate he may have fled outside of Ohio. Porter said police teams will continue to monitor the area in case Marlow returns. The Dayton Police Bomb Squad has also been called in to ensure there are no other threats to neighborhood safety. “This is the first violent crime in the neighborhood in recent memory. We ask anyone with possible information regarding this incident or Marlow’s whereabouts to call our dispatch center,” Porter said. “We are working to determine if there was a motive for this horrific tragedy or if mental illness played a role.” The FBI joined local authorities in the search. Officials said Marlow has ties to Indianapolis, Chicago and Lexington. Anyone with information about Marlow’s whereabouts is asked to contact the FBI at 1-800-Call-FBI or call 911. The Butler Township Police Department is assisted by partners from the Sheriff’s Office from Montgomery County, the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.
