JACKSON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say two boys found fatally shot in a southern Ohio home were half brothers.

Jackson City Police have identified the boys as a 12-year-old Austin Wiseman and 9-year-old Blake Campbell. They say they lived together at their grandparents' home, where the shootings occurred Wednesday in an upstairs bedroom.

Police are investigating, but they don't believe anyone else was involved directly in the shootings. Authorities have said no one else was at home at the time and that a .44-caliber handgun was recovered.

Jackson is a city of about 7,000 people in mostly rural Appalachian Ohio, about 65 miles south of Columbus.
