3 killed at Cracker Barrel restaurant in Ohio

BROOKLYN, Ohio (AP) - Police shot and killed an armed man at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in Ohio where a woman and a girl had been killed and another person was wounded.

Authorities said a woman called 911 from the restaurant Thursday night, saying her husband was upset because she told him she was leaving him.

Officers heard gunshots when they arrived and saw an armed man leaving the restaurant in Brooklyn, Ohio, near Cleveland.

Police Chief Scott Mielke says officers shot him when he refused to surrender. The wounded person was taken to a hospital.

Police couldn't immediately say Friday morning whether the other victims were shot or describe any relationship between the victims and armed man.

Authorities have not yet identified the suspect and the victims.
