Cops: Man killed neighbor after she put kids on school bus

HOLLAND, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in Ohio say a man shot and killed one of his neighbors and injured another just after they put their children on a school bus. They say he then set fire to their home and shot himself.

The suspect’s girlfriend told media outlets in Toledo that she saw him shoot the couple Tuesday before he shot himself in the head.

A coroner says a woman was pronounced dead a few hours later. The shooter’s condition wasn’t clear.

Authorities say there had been an ongoing dispute for several months between several neighbors on the street.

The Lucas County sheriff’s office says the couple was found shot near the bus stop in the village of Holland.

The fire apparently was extinguished within an hour of a 911 call about the shooting.
