MOUNT HEALTHY, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a man was shot and killed after allegedly breaking into an Ohio home and assaulting an ex-girlfriend over the weekend.

The Hamilton County sheriff’s office said 33-year-old Gregory Lyle climbed through a window of the Mount Healthy home just before 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

Once inside, officials said, Lyle assaulted a woman and was shot and killed by a man who lived in the home. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The sheriff’s office called the case domestic violence and said Lyle was the ex-boyfriend of the woman who lived in the home.

Officials said the investigation is ongoing and there is no threat to the public.
