A mother sleeping with her 4-day-old child was shot in the head in Pike County Ohio, per the New York Times.
The child was spared.
Along with the mother, 7 other members of the same family were killed in the same manner.
Police don’t know who did it or why yet.
The deaths occurred in 3 homes in the sparsely populated area of Ohio.
An oddity — police did not say who called the deaths in the early Friday 911 call.
Late Friday, officers were checking on other members of the Rhoden family because they could not rule out additional danger.
