NE Ohio police probe possible connection between 2 dead men


NORTH CANTON, Ohio (AP) — Police are investigating the potential connection between two dead men — one who was shot at a northeast Ohio home, another found with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound outside a nearby park restroom.

North Canton police say they were called early Monday morning about an unresponsive 49-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds. Officers searching the surrounding area for someone involved in the shooting then found an 18-year-old man with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound at a city park.

Investigators didn’t immediately release the names of the men or further details about the circumstances of the shootings.

Police investigating both crime scenes asked that classes be canceled at a nearby middle school to keep one of the crime-scene areas secured.
