TIFFIN, Ohio (AP) — Investigators say a suspect in a stabbing at an Ohio home fired at responding officers with a high-powered rifle before being fatally shot.
A sheriff’s deputy was injured in the gunfire on Tuesday in Tiffin, roughly 50 miles (80 kilometers) southeast of Toledo. The Advertiser-Tribune (http://bit.ly/2q2jyII ) reports the deputy was hit in the shoulder and hospitalized in stable condition.
Tiffin’s police chief says the deputy’s car was “riddled with bullets.”
Authorities arrived after a woman reported that a man threatened to shoot her son and then stabbed him. The 25-year-old stabbing victim was recovering at a Toledo hospital.
Investigators identified the dead shooter only as 34-year-old Scott Bloomfield.
Two Tiffin officers who fired at him are on administrative leave while the state Bureau of Criminal Investigation reviews the shooting.
