Dead, Including Police Chief And Suspect, After Shooting At Ohio Nursing Home

Local radio station airs controversial PSA about child porn

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.

Thorp said authorities believe a fourth body is that of the shooter, but the shooter's motive and identification are not yet known.

Disario was shot at the Pine Kirk Care Center, where he was responding to a report of a man with a gun.

Disario was a father of six children and was expecting a seventh, said Thorp, who added that he did not know the chief.

Kirkersville Elementary School is closed for the day.

Kirkersville is about 30 miles east of Columbus. Some residents barricaded themselves during the shooting, but none of them were injured, he said.

According to Licking County Sheirff Randy Thorpe, the chief of Kirkersville Police, Steven Eric Disario, was shot and killed in the line of duty.

Responding officers found Disario on the street and then investigated a report of a gunman at the nursing home, Thorp said. It is unclear how the shooter gained access to the building, which was usually secured, Thorp said. According to WOSU's Esther Honig, that officer was Kirkersville police chief Robert E. Chamberlain II. Those students were reportedly taken to Watkins Middle School.

Kirkersville Elementary School was placed on lockdown, according to librarian Sue Keller, who couldn't provide details about the incident and whether it involved the school in any way.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sihk) has ordered flags flown at half-staff following the fatal shooting of a village police chief in an attack that also killed two nursing home employees. He said the officer was "wounded".
