Austin WisemanCINCINNATI, OH  – Two half-brothers were found dead after police say a 12-year-old boy fatally shot his 9-year-old half brother before turning the gun on himself.

The boys were found on Wednesday inside their grandparents’ home where they lived. In an upstairs bedroom, investigators say 12-year-old Austin Wiseman shot and killed his 9-year-old half-brother, Blake Campbell, before he killed himself with the same gun.

Investigators will now try to determine if this was a murder-suicide, a suicide pact or an accidental shooting followed by suicide. I’m going with the latter.

“There was no sign of a struggle,” Jackson County Coroner Dr. Gregory Hawker said. “The younger boy was just sitting in a children’s chair, sitting there like he was watching TV.”

Only two shots were fired from a .44-caliber handgun that belonged to the boys’ grandfather, Police Chief Carl Eisnaugle said Friday. The grandparents were not home at the time of the shootings, having left earlier to take care of some personal business.

Investigators have taken Wiseman’s computer in hopes that it contains clues to what might have led up to the shootings, but Eisnaugle said there’s the possibility that there may never be an explanation.

“Whether or not it’s an accident would be extremely hard to determine,” Eisnaugle said. “I don’t know if we’ll ever know.”
