WARREN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - Police have released the identity of the three victims involved in a Warren County shooting Saturday night.

According to Clearcreek Township police, 33-year-old Eric Gene Walker, shot himself, his estranged wife, 32-year-old Lauren Walker and his brother-in-law, 33-year-old Justin Michel.

Officials initially responded to reports of a shooting around 6 p.m. to the 1300 block of Whispering Woods Lane in Clearcreek Township near Springboro, said Clearcreek Police Chief John Terrill. The coroner arrived shortly after.

Upon arrival police said they found all three victims. They resided in the Whispering Woods Lane home together.

"Right now, we understand the shooter and the female that was shot were probably going through a divorce," Terrill said.

Lauren was airlifted with unknown injuries to Miami Valley Hospital, according to officials at the scene. Michel was shot in the leg and transported to a local hospital.

Walker was pronounced dead at the scene

The shooting investigation is still on-going.

Clearcreek Township police urged that residents are not in any danger and this is not an active shooter situation.
