A family argument in Ohio ended in eight people being shot dead in two places, including an 11-year-old boy and two more people were wounded, say authorities.
Five people were killed in one location, then two more were killed nearby before police killed the gunman.
The shootings happened in a wooded, residential neighbourhood of older homes outside Akron, Copley Township officers said.
Jeff Kirby of nearby Norton said he was visiting his mother's home not far from the shootings at mid-morning when he heard gunfire – about 15 shots with several pauses between them.
Kirby, 53, said the last gunfire he heard occurred about the same time he heard sirens in the neighbourhood.
Cops in Copley, Ohio, said on Monday the shooter was Michael Hance, 51. Police were still investigating a motive, but one neighborhood woman said Hance was feuding with Becky Dieter, his girlfriend, over her late parents' will.
