Thorp says two employees of the center and the suspected gunman were found dead inside the nursing home.

None of the residents was injured.

Two employees and the shooter were also killed, Throp said. The police chief, who had only been chief for about three weeks, arrived at the nursing home shortly before 8 a.m., the Dispatch noted.

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

Students who were en route to Kickersville Elementary School, which is near the nursing home, were diverted to Watkins Middle School, according to local reports.

Responding officers found Disario on the street and then investigated a report of a gunman in the nearby Pine Kirk Care Center, Thorp said. The village of about 500 residents is roughly 25 miles east of Columbus. A home across the street reportedly was damaged by a stray bullet, but Thorp said that had not been confirmed to have been part of Friday's incident.

Homeland Security, the Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Licking County Sheriff's Office are responding to the 200 block of East Main Street in Kirkersville. When they entered the nursing home, the gunman and the workers were dead, he said.

Licking County Sheriff Randy Thorp says the gunman took two passers-by hostage behind the nursing home in a wooded area Friday.

Kathy Rogers, who owns The Depot Thrift Shop in downtown Kirkersville, said she heard multiple gunshots Friday morning.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich sent his condolences to the officer's loved ones. Parents can pick up their children from the middle school but are advised not to head to the elementary school. "Grateful for law enforcement's quick response".
