Three dead in Cracker Barrel restaurant shooting
BROOKLYN, Ohio — An apparent domestic dispute left three people dead at a Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and Restaurant near Cleveland on Thursday, according to Ohio police.
The shootings took place after police received a 911 call from a woman at the restaurant in Brooklyn, Ohio, that “she had just informed her husband that she was leaving him and he wasn’t taking it well,” Police Chief Scott Mielke said.
The woman told police that her husband was in a car circling the eatery.
When officers arrived, they heard gunshots and encountered a man leaving the restaurant with a gun. When the gunman failed to surrender to authorities, they fatally shot him.
In addition to the gunman, an adult woman and juvenile female were dead at the scene. Another juvenile female was wounded and transported to a local hospital for treatment.
“It’s believed that it’s one family at this point,” Mielke said.
Authorities are investigating the shooting.
