MASSILLON, Ohio (AP) - Police say a doctor has died following a shooting at an Ohio hospital parking lot over a shared love interest.

Authorities say the suspect, 50-year-old Michael Wood, killed himself shortly after shooting 59-year-old Dr. George Seese Monday afternoon.

Police say Wood fired multiple shots at Seese as the doctor was walking toward his vehicle outside Affinity Medical Center in Massillon. Wood then shot himself, and he was pronounced dead of a gunshot wound to the head.

Seese died hours after the shooting. Police did not say if the doctor died before or after emergency surgery.

WBNS-TV reports Seese did not work at the hospital full-time. His medical office was located in Perry Township.



Both the hospital and Massillon City Schools were placed on lockdown for several hours after the shooting.
