March 5, 2020 GMT

PEMBERVILLE, Ohio (AP) — The shooting deaths of a teenage girl and a man found inside an Ohio home on Thursday appears to have been a murder-suicide, authorities said.

Wood County sheriff’s deputies responded around 9:15 a.m. to the Pemberville home where Cierra McCrory, 17, lived with her mother, who found the bodies.

The man’s name was not released, pending notification of his family, but authorities said he did not live in the home and was not a Pemberville resident. It also was not clear how the man and McCrory knew each other.

No other injuries were reported in the shooting. It wasn’t immediately clear when it happened or why it occurred, and authorities declined further comment on the deaths, citing the ongoing investigation.

McCrory was junior at Eastwood High School.
