Toledo police shot and killed a homicide suspect after officials said he fled from them following the death of his live-in girlfriend and later repeatedly pointed a gun at officers.
Police said investigators had earlier interviewed Albert Alderman, 33, after he called 911 shortly after 6 a.m. Sunday and said Kelsie Barnier, 29, was unresponsive. Police initially reported no signs of trauma on the body. But police said the Lucas County coroner later concluded that Barnier died of strangulation and ruled the death a homicide.
