Prosecutors said Friday that an Ohio man accused of fatally shooting his three young boys acknowledged to planning the killings and lining up the victims before shooting them with a weapon.
Chad Doerman, 32, has been charged with aggravated murder, according to authorities. He is also suspected of injuring the mother of the boys inside the family’s home. He was being held in the Clermont County Jail, and his bond was set at $20 million.
According to a news release from the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office, deputies arrived at the home in Monroe Township shortly before 4:30 p.m. on Thursday after receiving two 911 calls: one from a woman who was yelling that “her babies had been shot” and another from a passing driver who reported seeing a girl running down the street screaming that her father was killing people.
Deputies discovered three youngsters, aged 3, 4, and 7, outside the house with gunshot wounds. Despite their best efforts, the boys passed away at the site. Their identities have not been made public.
The unnamed 34-year-old mother was outside the house when she was shot in the hand, according to the sheriff’s office. She was taken to hospital, but her injuries didn’t seem to be more fatal. Read More
