Police: 3 killed at restaurant in northeast Ohio

Associated Press

BROOKLYN, Ohio (AP) — Police shot and killed an armed man Thursday at a restaurant where two other people were killed and one was wounded, authorities said.

The shooting happened after a woman called 911 from a Cracker Barrel restaurant, saying her husband was upset because she told him she was leaving him, police said in a news release. She said he was circling the parking lot in his car.

Officers arrived, heard gunshots and saw an armed man leaving the restaurant in Brooklyn, Ohio, near Cleveland. Police Chief Scott Mielke said officers shot him when he refused to surrender.

A woman and a girl also were killed. One person was taken to a hospital.

Police couldn't immediately say whether the other victims were shot or describe any relationship among the victims. The suspect and the victims were not identified.
