Officer shot, two injured in shooting at OH nursing home

The condition of the officer and the other victims is unknown.

A gunman ambushed a police officer in central Ohio Friday morning and then shot two more people inside a nursing home, authorities say.

ABC6 reports that, although the nursing home is the location where the shooting was reported, it's not yet clear whether the tragedy unfolded inside the building.

An officer was shot while responding to the active shooter situation.

According to 911 dispatchers, an active shooter situation was reported in the 200 block East Main Street in Kirkersville at Pine Kirk Care Center.

Kirkersville Elementary School is on lockdown.

In a tweet, Governor John Kasich said he was "shocked & pained by the horrific shooting in Kirkersville".

An active shooter at an OH nursing home has been "neutralized", according to scanner traffic.

A nearby school was on lockdown, according to WBNS, during the investigation. The school will remain closed for the day.

The village is about 24 miles east of Columbus.
