Coroner: Half-Brothers Killed in Accidental Homicide-Suicide
JACKSON, OHIO (Kellie Hanna/Kelsey Mallahan) – Jackson County autopsy results from two boys show the half-brothers were fatally shot as a result of an apparent accidental homicide-suicide on Wednesday morning in Jackson, Ohio.
Jackson officials say 12-year-old Austin Wiseman put a .44 caliber handgun to his chin and shot himself in the head after accidentally shooting 9-year-old Blake Campbell.
Officials say the two bodies were found just feet apart on the second floor of their grandparents’ home on E. South St., along with the gun and hollow-point bullets.
Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations spent more than nine-hours investigating the scene.
Neighbors say this is something they would never expect in their community.
"Nothing like this happens here," Bartam said. "It's very sad. It's heartbreaking."
The boys were left home alone while their grandparents were visiting a local hospital.
