The police chief slain by a gunman who killed two others in a nursing home last week died from a single shotgun wound as he got out of his auto, a coroner said Monday.

Neighbors came together to pray and to remember Kirkserville Police Chief Steven Eric DiSario Tuesday night. Higgins says apparently "mistakes were made" and that understanding what happened is important.

The guns were found Friday at the home of 43-year-old Thomas Hartless by sheriff's deputies and investigators from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation hours after the killings at a nursing home in Kirkersville, The Newark Advocate reported.

And 48-year-old nurse's aide Cindy Krantz died in a hallway from a shotgun wound.

Hartless was found dead inside the Pine Kirk Care Center in Kirkersville, a village of some 500 residents, about 25 miles (39 kilometers) east of Columbus.

"I never intended Tom to be jailed for his actions, rather it was a cry for help", Medrano wrote in the letter, according to the station. Less than three weeks later, Higgins signed an order suspending the remainder of Hartless' sentence and releasing him from police custody on April 11. Authorities say Medrano obtained a protection order against Hartless a week before he killed her.
