UPDATE: Alert for missing boy canceled after triple homicide in Ohio

PEDRO, Ohio — Authorities still are searching for a suspect, but have canceled the missing-child alert for a 7-year-old boy who was sought following an incident in southern Ohio that left three people dead and a fourth hospitalized.

The Lawrence County sheriff’s office and the state attorney general’s office wouldn’t immediately confirm Thursday whether the boy, Devin Holston, was found safe.

The sheriff’s office said earlier Thursday there was reason to believe Holston was injured or in danger after the discovery of the adults’ bodies in a residence on State Route 93 at about 7:22 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 11. Three adults inside were found dead from apparent gunshot wounds, according to a news release from Sheriff Jeff Lawless.

A fourth victim, located at another residence about ¼ mile from the initial scene, had apparent stab wounds to the neck and head and was flown to Cabell Huntington Hospital.

Shots fired after Midlothian police pursuit | WTVR.com

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — A bank robbery suspect was shot during a police pursuit along Midlothian Turnpike that ended in the woods in Chesterfield County Wednesday afternoon, officials said.

Officials said officers were dispatched around 2:30 p.m. to a report of an armed robbery at the Argent Federal Credit Union at 1901 Walmart Way.

Chesterfield police spokeswoman Elizabeth Caroon said the suspect pulled out a gun and demanded cash before running off with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police gave chase after spotting a vehicle with a driver matching the description of the suspect: a white male with red hair and beard wearing a hooded sweatshirt and baseball cap.

That pursuit came to an end about four miles away along the 9400 block of Midlothian Turnpike in a field, near Pearson Hyundai, Crime Insider sources indicated.

Video taken outside Pearson Hyundai showed police speeding through the car dealership’s parking lot.
