Resident heard shots, screaming in Ohio killings

Authorities are responding to the report of an active shooter situation Friday morning in Kirkersville

Gunman walked into nursing home and shot two others.

"He was shot after he entered the nursing home". It's believed that one of the dead is the suspect in the shooting.

Disario was responding to a report of a man with a gun, and his last radio communication said he had the man in sight, Thorp said. The father of six had only been police chief for three weeks.

Kirkersville Elementary School was placed on lockdown as a result of the situation, 10TV reported.

The Ohio State Hwy Patrol confirms a police officer was shot while responding to an active shooter situation at a nursing and rehabilitation center in Kirkersville.

The elementary school - about a quarter of a mile away - was on lockdown as a precaution while the police investigated. 'I went back in the house, and I heard another one, and that's all I know.

Parents can pick up students at Watkins Middle School.

"This is a situation, we don't know the cause or goal or what drove the individual to do this", Thorp said.

In a tweet, Governor John Kasich said he was "shocked & pained by the horrific shooting in Kirkersville". "Grateful for law enforcement's quick response".

Thorp said the day is especially tough for law enforcement, saying the deputies who assisted DiSario on the scene were struggling to deal with the morning's events.

The officer was shot at the Pine Kirk Care Center on East Main Street in Kirkersville, located approximately 20 miles east of Columbus, according to the Newark Advocate and 10TV. He said the officer was "wounded". According to the Ohio Department of Health, the facility holds 24 beds, which are certified for both Medicare and Medicaid.
