CLEVELAND (AP) — A 70-year-old man was accused of fatally shooting another man in an Ohio apartment and barricading himself and a child inside before killing himself, police said Monday.

Officers responding to a shooting at an apartment late Sunday found a woman outside who told them a 30-year-old man had been shot and that he and her 12-year-old daughter remained inside the apartment with the suspect, according to a police release.

Officers removed the unharmed child and the younger man from the home. He was later pronounced dead at a hospital.

Authorities were searching for the older man when they heard a gunshot and found him dead from an apparent gunshot wound, police said.

Police said the woman, 32, lived in the apartment with her daughter and the younger man and that the older man was described as a family friend who was staying with them.

Authorities didn’t immediately comment on a motive for the shooting or release the names of those involved.
