The medical examiner’s office identified the victims as Ronald Roberts, 24; Kem Delaney, 23; Maria Nash, 19, and Kiana Welch, 19. All four died from a single gunshot to the head, rumored to be execution style.

“My son did not deserve this. Anybody that was in there did not deserve this,” said April Roberts-Gilbert. 

According to WOIO, police say the door of the townhome was locked and there was no sign of forced entry. Police however report no suspects or new details in the case.

Family members said Roberts, who lived in the townhouse, and Welch were dating.

Housing Authority executive director Tony O’Leary says police told his office that no weapons were found in the townhome.

The community of North Akron gathered Sunday night for a vigil honoring the four victims. The candlelight vigil was held in the parking lot of the Kimlyn Circle townhouse complex, the site where the shootings took place.
