On Saturday afternoon Attorney General Mike DeWine released two audio recordings of the 911 calls that reported the initial incidents on Friday. In the first recording the caller is describing what turns out to be the scene in which seven people were found shot. The second recording would result in the eighth body being found.
911 dispatcher answers the call to find a woman out of breath.
