Three Dead After Northwest Ohio Apartment Shooting
Police say three people are dead – including a 3-year-old child – after a shooting at an apartment complex in northwest Ohio.
Mark Hummer, the police chief in Lake Township near Toledo, said a man shot five people in two apartments Tuesday night before coming outside and firing on officers. Two officers returned fire and killed him.
Besides the child, a 26-year-old woman – believed to be the estranged girlfriend of the gunman – was killed. Three other people shot in the apartments were hospitalized.
Hummer said two are in serious condition, and one is in guarded condition.
The chief said the officers responded to a reported domestic situation at the apartment complex at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.
No names have been released. Hummer planned a news conference later Wednesday.
