TYRONE, Mo. (CNN) — Seven people were found fatally shot in four residences in Tyrone, Missouri, after a girl reported hearing gunshots at one of the homes Thursday night, said Sgt. Jeff Kinder of the Missouri State Highway Patrol on Friday morning.

An eighth body — that of an elderly woman who apparently died of natural causes — was found in a fifth residence during the investigation, Kinder said.

A suspect in the shootings — a 36-year-old man — was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot in a vehicle in an adjacent county, Kinder said. Another person was found injured.

Tyrone is about 135 miles (84 kilometers) southwest of St. Louis.
