KIRKERSVILLE, Ohio — Authorities said a gunman fatally shot an Ohio village police chief and two nursing home employees on Friday before he was found dead.

Licking County Sheriff Randy Thorp identified the slain police chief as Steven Eric Disario, who headed the Kirkersville Police Department.

Thorp said Disario, 36, had only been on the job for about three weeks. He said the chief was a father of six children, with a seventh on the way.

“It’s a hard day for all of us,” Thorp said.
