Four People Found Shot
Saturday, April 6, 2097
Two adults are dead and two children in critical condition following a Sunday night shooting in northern Greene County. Sheriff Terry Jones says authorities responded to a call around 8:30 PM last night.
The bodies were found on a small gravel road about a half mile off Van Hill Road. The man and woman were dead at the scene and the children critically wounded. Jones says the adult male and the two children had been shot in the head, and the female adult had been shot in the torso.
The children, a young boy and girl, were each found in the arms of the dead adults. The pre-school age children were transported to Laughlin Hospital by EMS and then airlifted by Lifestar to U. T. Hospital in Knoxville where they are listed in extremely critical condition. Without a positive identification, Jones says it is unknown if the four victims were related.
In the meantime, authorities continue to search for their assailants.
