Police chief, 2 nursing home employees killed; shooter dead

Law enforcement officials gather outside the scene of a shooting outside the Pine Kirk nursing home in Kirkersville Ohio on Friday

Investigators believe Hartless died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to local media outlets. The suspect is 43 year old Thomas Hartless. The gunman was found dead with the employees. Kirkersville Police Chief Steven Eric DiSario responded to a call reporting a man with a gun in the street near the facility; officers arriving as backup found DiSario shot outside.

"This is a really small town, and everybody knows everybody", Kirkersville resident Debbie Messer told the Columbus Dispatch. Court records show Hartless, who authorities say gunned down an OH village police chief and two nursing home employees on Friday, May 12, 2017, had a history of violence, including against the nurse who was among the slain.

Disario headed the Kirkersville Police Department for only about three weeks, Licking County Sheriff Randy Thorp said.

"We don't know the cause or the objective or what drove this individual to do this", Thorp said, adding that was being investigated.

The two hostages, who were not harmed, ran away when the gunman shot Disario, investigators said. The village's new police chief was also killed and the suspected shooter was found dead.

Gov. John Kasich ordered flags flown at half-staff in Licking County and the Statehouse and expressed his condolences in a tweet.

The order lasts through sunset Tuesday. When law enforcement arrived at the scene, they found Hartless dead with the two employees and Disario.

As early as April, Medrano's friends were trying to protect her from a man who they said regularly attacked her.

Rogers says she went across the street to a neighbor's home and hunkered down with a group of about nine adults and eight children. Authorities say Steven Eric Disario, who headed the Kirkersv.

The 36-year-old Disario was shot near the Pine Kirk Care Center Friday morning.

Some of the nursing home's 23 residents barricaded themselves during the shooting, but none of them was injured, he said.

"I am afraid to be alone with him, that he will hurt me for good", Medrano wrote in her latest petition this month.
