Westerville Teacher One Of Four Dead After Hocking County Shooting
Four people are dead after the Hocking County Sheriffâ€™s Office says a man fatally shot his wifeâ€™s two sisters and his son before turning the gun on himself.
Sheriff Lanny North says some sort of family squabble led to yesterdayâ€™s deadly shooting near Logan, about 50 miles southeast of Columbus.
The Columbus Dispatch quotes a Kentucky man as saying the shooter was his brother, 63-year-old Paul Gilkey.
Keith Gilkey tells the Dispatch his brother killed his wife, 59-year-old Darlene Gilkey, and his son, 38-year-old Leroy Gilkey, a Spanish teacher at Westerville North High School.
School officials confirm that Leroy Gilkey had taught at the high school since 1999. Flags are flying at half staff at the high school.
Keith Gilkey says his brother was dealing with his wife’s cancer treatments and pressure from her family.
The sheriffâ€™s department would not confirm details early this morning, but a dispatcher says theyâ€™re planning a press conference for later today.
