AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Four adults were found dead Thursday in the basement of a northeast Ohio townhome, all shot in the head.

Someone discovered the bodies at a complex on Akron's northeast side, according to Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority executive director Tony O'Leary. He said police told his office no weapons were found in the home.

Police told media outlets that two men and two women who appeared to be in their 20s had been shot in the head, but no other details including their names, were immediately released. It wasn't clear whether police were looking for any suspects.

Photos of the complex showed crime scene tape cordoning off one area as officers canvassed for information about what happened.

The units, in an older, small complex near a mall are normally quiet and don't have a history of crime, O'Leary said.

"It's certainly not what some people see as a typical public housing unit," he said.
