    Police tape surrounds one of five crime scenes near Tyrone

Two days after eight people died in a shooting rampage in a small Missouri town, police have named the final three victims.

They were related. Carey Dean Shriver, 46, was married to Valirea Love Shriver, 44. Also killed was Cary Shriver’s father, Darrell Dean Shriver, 68, according to a statement Saturday from the Texas County Sheriff’s Office in Houston, Mo.

The statement did not say whether the gunman, Joseph Jesse Aldridge, 36, knew them.

A 67-year-old woman from Tyrone, Mo., who was injured in the shooting is recovering, according to the statement. Her name has not been released and the sheriff’s office did not disclose the nature of her injuries. The shootings occurred Thursday night in four different homes in Tyrone, an unincorporated community in Texas County. Aldridge is believed to be the cousin of four of the victims. He was found dead, apparently of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, in a vehicle in Shannon County, 35 miles from Tyrone.

The other four victims were Garold Dee Aldridge, 52; Julie Ann Aldridge, 47; Harold Wayne Aldridge, 50; and Janell Arlisa Aldridge, 48. Joseph Aldridge’s mother, Alice L. Aldridge, 74, was found dead in one of the homes, and appears to have died of natural causes, according to police.

Texas County, less than 50 miles from the Arkansas border, has a population of about 25,600.
