iStock/Thinkstock(PAINTSVILLE, Ky.) — Five people are dead, including a male suspect, after separate shooting attacks at a house and an apartment complex in northeast Kentucky Saturday, officials said.

Two victims were found dead in a home in Paintsville around 3:30 p.m. Then, in a search for suspect Jospeh Nickell, two additional victims were found dead at an apartment complex, the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office said. The suspect was also found dead there.

The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office was directed to the apartment complex after “911 received a tip that the subject’s vehicle was on Mill Street in Paintsville,” according to a statement. “All agencies responded and located the vehicle. Sheriff Price led a search of the apartment complex. An apartment was located that had the bodies of two additional victims and the preparator, Joseph Nickell. All three were deceased.”

Johnson County Sheriff Dwayne Price said in a statement, “This has been a horrific murder spree. There are no words to describe the heartbreak in seeing four lives taken due to the actions of one man. I have worked in law enforcement for 34 years. This is one of the most disturbing acts of violence I have ever seen.”

The identities of the victims are not being released pending notification of families.

No further information, including motive, was provided.

3 dead, 4 injured after helicopter crashes near Grand Canyon

iStock/Thinkstock(PEACH SPRINGS, Ariz.) — A helicopter touring through the Grand Canyon crashed late Saturday afternoon, killing three people and injuring another four, officials told ABC News.

A Papillion Airways Eurocopter EC130 “sustained substantial damage” when a crash was caused “under unknown circumstances” in the Grand Canyon,” FAA spokesman Allen Kenitzer told ABC News.

Kenitzer added that the location of the crash is 3 miles east of the Grand Canyon West Airport, which is located in Peach Springs, Arizona.

Hualapai Nation Police Chief Francis Bradley told ABC News that the crash occurred at 5:20 p.m. local time, with 6 passengers and 1 pilot on board the helicopter.

It is unclear if the pilot is injured or deceased.

As of 9 p.m. local time, the four injured people — all of whom were Level 1 trauma patients — were still at the scene, because of the difficulty of getting to the site due to high winds, darkness and hard terrain.

Helicopters were to be used to evacuate the injured.

According to Papillion Airway’s website, the carrier flies roughly 600,000 passengers a year on Grand Canyon and other tours.

ABC News has reached out to Papillion Airways for comment.
