AKRON -- Akron police are on the scene after four bodies were found in the basement of a home.

The discovery came at a home on Kimlyn Circle off Independence Avenue in eastern Akron. 

According to police, there were multiple shots fired in the shooting that killed two women and two men, all believed to be in their early twenties.

Police were called to the house at 2:39 p.m. The 911 call came from a neighbor, after another person discovered the bodies inside the apartment on the basement level.

Police say they have no suspects or any theories of the motive for the shootings. 

While police have not confirmed the identities of the victims, family members of one of the men killed say the apartment belongs to his sister, who was not home at the time.

April Roberts Gilbert says police told her that her son, 24-year-old Ronald Roberts, is among the victims.

"My son would not have hurt anyone. My son would have gave the shirt off his back. Whoever did this needs to be found," said the mother.

Neighbors recall seeing Roberts early Thursday morning, taking out the trash.  However, no one reported hearing any gun shots later in the day.

Investigators are hoping surveillance video, possibly from a nearby building or street, may have captured a clue.

"At least for the victims and families that we gather enough information to find out who's responsible for this," said Lt. Rick Edwards, of the Akron Police Department.

Autopsies are scheduled for Friday morning, at which time official identifications of the bodies will be made.

The home is located near Chapel Hill Mall.
