Ohio Closing Freeway in Shootings Probe

One of those shots, which hit a house, came from the same gun used in four other shootings, including the only fatality. The task force led by the Franklin County Sheriff’s office requested the closure from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and state transportation officials and local law enforcement agencies were to shut down ramps as soon as 4 p.m., said Michelle May, an Ohio Department of Transportation spokeswoman.
