CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Police have released the body cam footage of responding officers to the scene of a quadruple homicide at a West Chest apartment complex Sunday night.
Three women and one man were killed after multiple gunshots were fired at Lakefront at West Chester apartment complex, police said.
The victims were identified as Hakikat Singh Panag, 59, his wife Paramjit Kaur, 62, their daughter Shalinder Kaur, 39, and his wife’s sister, Amarjit Kaur, 58, the Butler County Coroner’s Office confirmed.
The discovery came after authorities received a 911 call just before 10 p.m. on Sunday, April 28.
A man told a dispatcher he came home and found four relatives on the ground, bleeding from the head. He said they were his wife, mother, father and aunt.
“They’re all down.... No one’s talking. No one’s talking,” he said. “They’re bleeding.”
In one body cam video, a resident of the complex approaches an officer to tell him his wife had called saying someone was banging on doors.
While on the phone with the dispatcher, the man who called 911 calls out for help numerous times.
Another video shows a responding officer asking the dispatcher to have the caller come outside and wave at them if possible.
Shortly after, you see the 911 caller with his hands up go to the ground and then get handcuffed.
Barbara Wilson, director of public information for West Chester Township, said it’s important to note the caller who was placed in handcuffs was not under arrest by police.
“It would be standard procedure, in a case such as this, to secure individuals involved while the scene is assessed,” she said.
All four victims died of gunshot wounds, coroner’s officials said.
On Tuesday, a law enforcement source told FOX19 that a dive team with Ohio’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation recovered a gun from a pond at the complex where the relatives were killed.
West Chester Police Chief Joel Herzog said this is still an active investigation and police are looking to identify a suspect at this time.
