MANSFIELD, Ohio (AP) - Police officers in northeast Ohio have shot and killed a suspect in the slaying of a man in a nearby city.

Police in Mansfield say officers killed 39-year-old Shane Lambert of Norwalk around 3 a.m. Monday inside a vacant home. Lambert was a suspect in the disappearance of 57-year-old James Berens, whose neighbor called police Saturday.

Police found Berens’ body Monday around 4:15 a.m., about a half-mile from his home in Norwalk, 35 miles north of Mansfield, his two dogs standing guard. Authorities believe he was killed Friday afternoon inside his garage.
