Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, Ohio -

Two children were found shot to death inside a Jackson home Wednesday morning.

According to Jackson police, a 9-year-old boy and 12-year-old boy were found shot in an upstairs bedroom of their grandparents' home on East South Street shortly after 11 a.m.

The sheriff's office tells NBC4 it appears the oldest boy shot his younger brother before shooting himself.

According the  boys' uncle, the boys would often stay with the grandparents while their mother worked. The boys and their mother lived next door to the grandparents.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office, Jackson Police Department and Ohio BCI continue to investigate.

No other details were released, but NBC4 will update as we learn new information.
