CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio
Police in northeastern Ohio say a 22-year-old man shot his way into an ex-girlfriend's house then killed himself in the basement as officers closed in.
Police responded to the home after Robert Mann shot out a door to get into his former girlfriend's house. Officers were already looking for Mann because he'd made threats earlier in the evening to kill his mother and the ex-girlfriend.
Mann, of nearby Rittman, was found hiding in the basement. When he was confronted by officers, he shot himself in the head. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Officers found that Mann had an assault rifle, 9mm handgun, more than 140 rounds of ammunition and cable ties.
