Police: Gunman killed in Ohio after shooting 8

Aug 8, 2011 12:03:00 AM - thestate.com
A northeast Ohio man ran through his small town neighborhood Sunday shooting eight people, including his girlfriend and her brother, before he was shot and killed in an exchange of gunfire with police, authorities said.

Eight people, including the gunman, were killed. Witnesses told reporters at least one of the victims was a child.

Police did not have a motive and did not release the names or ages of the gunman or the victims but provided a chronology of the shootings that began around 11 a.m. in a middle-class neighborhood of Copley, a town of about 14,000 west of Akron.

"A person running through the neighborhood and firing a gun" prompted calls to police, Copley Police Department said in a news release late Sunday. At a home, the gunman shot his girlfriend, ran to a home next door and shot her brother and four others, then chased two people through some yards and shot one of them, police said.

He went into a third home and shot another person before leaving and exchanging gunfire with a police officer and a former police officer.
