WILLARD, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A hostage situation in Willard, OH has ended.

According to city officials, a call was received around 5:18 p.m. Wednesday, reporting a gunman was attempting to rob the Family Dollar store.

When police responded, they found not a robbery, but a hostage situation. Police say a gunman, Shawn Schuett, had barricaded the doors and held two female store employees hostage. Officials say Schuett stated he was not interested in money but wanted to "make a statement."

Shortly after 8 p.m., one of the hostages exited the store and told police that the gunman had shot the other hostage. At that time, police broke store windows to enter the building and found Schuett dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot.

Police say Kim Kelly, 48, of New Washington, Ohio, was killed in the standoff. Another person was taken to a nearby hospital and is listed in good condition.
