Four dead in shooting at United States nursing home

Four dead in shooting at United States nursing home

Police say the active shooter situation has been "neutralized", according to NBC4i, though law enforcement will not elaborate on details.

A sheriff says a gunman who killed an OH police chief and two female nursing home employees took two random people as hostages shortly before the shootings.

Disario had only been on the job for about three weeks. She lived on the same street as he did in the nearby village of Utica.

The gunman was in a wooded area behind the nursing home when he encountered two passers-by, whom he temporarily took hostage.

Three people and the suspected gunman have been found dead after a shooting at a nursing home in Ohio.

Licking County Sheriff Randy Thorp said Kirkersville Chief Steven Eric DiSario, two employees of the Pine Kirk Care Center nursing facility and the suspected shooter are dead.

According to an ABC News report, Disario responded to a call regarding a man with a gun.




Two employees and the shooter were also killed, Throp said. The suspect gunman is also dead after turning his weapon on himself.

"We don't know the cause or the objective or what drove this individual to do this", Thorp said, adding that was being investigated. It is unclear how the shooter gained access to the building, which was usually secured, Thorp said.

Kirkersville is about 23 miles east of Columbus.

A primary school near the shooting scene was placed on lockdown, and classes were later cancelled for the day. The unidentified officer worked for the Kirkersville Police Department. A message was left with the center, whose employees appeared wheeling medical carts out of the facility Friday evening to put them into storage while patients are away.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is processing the crime scene and leading the investigation into Friday's incident.

Special agent Michael Trout from the BCI says seven special investigation agents are now conducting interviews and three crime scene agents are on the scene. "Join me in praying for his family, friends and colleagues, and for the others injured in this tragedy".
