PIKE COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati restaurant owner Jeff Ruby tweeted Saturday that he is offering a $25,000 reward for anyone that can provide information that leads to the arrest of the Rhoden family shooter or shooters.

"2whom it may concern: Would like to post $25k reward for anyone who leads to arrest of Rhoden family killer(s) in Pike Co. Ohio. Need Contact," Ruby tweeted.

The eight Rhoden family victims were found inside four separate homes along Union Hill Road Friday morning.  Three of those homes are within a 1.5 mile walking distance, investigators said. The fourth home, where the final victim was located, is about thirty miles from the other family homes.

At a press conference Friday afternoon, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and Pike County Sheriff Charlie Reader urged the public to come forward with tips about the crime and gunman. Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-BCI-OHIO.

Reader believes the Rhoden family was targeted in the mass shooting and says those responsible for the killings could be "armed and extremely dangerous."

DeWine announced Saturday that the investigation was still in the preliminary stages and that no arrests had been made.
