Services Sunday for Ohio boys killed in shootings

JACKSON, Ohio (AP) — Funeral services are Sunday for two southern Ohio boys who died at home when the 12-year-old fatally shot his 9-year-old half brother and then turned the gun on himself.

A visitation Sunday afternoon will be followed by the funeral at Lewis & Gillum Funeral Home in Jackson for Austin Kidd Wiseman, 12, and Blake Allan Campbell, age 9.

Jackson authorities say they don't know yet what preceded the shootings. Authorities say each boy had a single gunshot wound to the head when found in their maternal grandparents' home where they lived. The boys had the same mother.

Obituaries describe Austin as a Boy Scout who enjoyed outdoors activities, and Blake as a Cub Scout who loved animals and video games.

Jackson has about 7,000 people 65 miles south of Columbus.
