Kirkersville Shooting: Three Dead, Including Police Chief, at Ohio Nursing Home

People shouted that they needed police, the witness said. He had been police chief for three weeks.

Officers have not released a description of a potential gunman. A crisis team was on the scene to help assist those officers, as well as the residents in the facility and other employees.

Two employees of the center and the suspected gunman were found dead inside the nursing home, the sheriff said.

A woman who works about a block from where an OH police chief and two nursing home employees were killed says she heard gunshots followed by screaming and then sirens.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is aiding local authorities in assessing the crime scene. Scanner traffic reports the active shooter has been "neutralized".

The police officer killed is from the Kirkersville department, according to 10TV.
