A fourth body was found at a house in western Kentucky where police were called in a shooting, authorities said.

Police responded to a house near Beaver Dam on Wednesday afternoon to find three victims outside the residence with apparent gunshot wounds, according to a statement from Kentucky State Police. An isolated structure near the house was on fire and a body was found inside Thursday morning, the statement said.

King told WFIE-TV that the police are not actively looking for a suspect. He said the property is a farm that supplies Tyson with chickens and the company comes to pick up the chickens.

Autopsies were scheduled Thursday for the first three victims found.

No further details were immediately disclosed. Police say they are continuing to investigate.
