MILFORD, Ohio (AP) - Police say a man fatally shot his estranged wife’s boyfriend and killed himself at a home in southwest Ohio’s Clermont County.

The shooting occurred early Monday morning in Miami Township, roughly 15 miles east of Cincinnati.

Township police say 38-year-old John Waitas forced his way into the home and shot the man living with his wife. Police say Waitas then turned the gun on himself after a “brief verbal encounter” with his wife.

Police say the man he repeatedly shot, 35-year-old Robert Dyer, died at a hospital.

Police say three of the four children who live at the property also were home at the time but weren’t hurt.

Assistant Chief Mike Mills told local media there were previous reports of domestic disputes involving the estranged couple.
