AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a man has been fatally shot and three people wounded, including a 12-year-old boy, during a home invasion in Akron.

Akron police say a 34-year-old man was found dead at a home Wednesday afternoon where he was visiting along with a 24-year-old man who was shot multiple times and the boy, who was shot in the abdomen. The boy was listed in serious condition at an Akron hospital.

A 39-year-old woman who lived in the home was shot in the leg. Police described her wounds and those of the 24-year-old man’s as not life threatening.

Lt. Rick Edwards says witnesses saw three men running from the house after shots were fired inside the residence.

No suspects have been arrested.
