Mass shooting during birthday party in USA's Florence city leaves four people killed

A mass shooting incident in the US city of Florence on Saturday left at least four people dead and three others injured, media reports said on Sunday.

According to reports, the shooting incident occurred inside a house when a birthday party was going on.

Officers found seven victims suffering from gunshot wounds shortly before 3 a.m. after receiving calls of an active shooter at a home on Ridgecrest Drive in Florence, southwest of Cincinnati, Ohio, Florence Police Department Chief Jeff Mallery was quoted as saying by CNN during a Saturday afternoon news conference.

The deceased were identified as Shane Miller, 20; Hayden Rybicki, 20; Delaney Eary, 19; and Melissa Parrett, 44.

Parrett, the homeowner, was hosting her son’s 21st birthday party when the shooting occurred, Mallery said.

Police have identified the suspect as 21-year-old Chase Garvey. 

He was not invited to the party but was known to people who were attending the event.

Garvey initially fled the scene and police told CNN he was discovered a short time later in a crashed vehicle with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Garvey was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

  “We’ve never dealt with this before. I know it’s going on throughout the nation, but this is the first time we’ve had a mass shooting in Florence. So, it is very emotional,” Mallery told CNN.
