NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The medical examiner in Nashville says the causes of death for seven people found dead in two homes in rural Tennessee included multiple blunt force injuries and some sharp force injuries.

Dr. Feng Li said Tuesday in a phone interview that all seven people were the victims of homicide. There was no evidence of bullet wounds.

The victims include the parents and uncle of suspect Michael Cummins. The 25-year-old was caught Saturday, hours after the first bodies were found in one of two rural Sumner County homes.

Cummins was shot and wounded during the capture and was still in the hospital on Tuesday. An eighth victim found wounded but alive at one of the homes was also hospitalized.
