Police chief, 3 others dead after Licking County nursing home shooting

Police chief, 3 others dead after Licking County nursing home shooting

The nursing home appears to be located in a residential area, and people in nearby houses were told by law enforcement to stay inside while authorities handled the situation.

Authorities say a gunman has fatally shot the police chief of an OH village and two nursing home employees. It's believed that one of the dead is the suspect in the shooting.

WBNS TV reports that the gunman first shot the officer, then went into the nursing home and shot two more people before turning the gun on himself.

Disario, 36, was a father of six children, with a seventh on the way, the sheriff said.

Multiple people were hospitalized after a shooting was reported Friday morning near an OH nursing facility.

Pine Kirk Care Center is a 24-bed facility in a converted residence, the Dispatch reports. Officials said during a news conference the officer had been police chief for three weeks.

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 State Highway Patrol, Homeland Security and the Licking County Sheriff's Office were called to the nursing home about 7:30 a.m.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich sent his condolences to the officer's loved ones.

The elementary school - about a quarter of a mile away - was on lockdown as a precaution while the police investigated. When the sheriff informed the district about the shooting, all the kids were taken to the middle school and subsequently released to their parents. "Thinking of the officer, officer's family & all involved", said Senator Sherrod Brown (D) on Twitter.
