YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio (WDTN) - Members of the Yellow Springs community gathered Wednesday evening to try and understand why a standoff and shootout left one man dead.
More than a hundred people gathered outside Mills Lawn Elementary at 9:00 pm. Some were still visibly shaken about what they saw. This after a long day of investigation about exactly what happened.
The Yellow Springs Police Department held a news conference about an early morning standoff and shootout earlier this afternoon.
Police say dozens of gunshots were exchanged during the incident with Paul Schenck, 42, in the 200 block of North High Street.
They say four shots were fired by Greene County Sheriff deputies. Those officers were not identified. They were placed on paid administrative leave during the investigation.
Police arrived at the home around 11:pm Tuesday on the reports of a domestic dispute between Schenck and his son, Max, 19. Officers finally entered the home around 4:30 am to find the suspect dead.
Max Schenck was not injured, but was checked out at the hospital.
Officers do not know whether the victim died at the hands of police or a self-inflicted gunshot wound. An autopsy will be performed Thursday.
The investigation is being conducted by the Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
Schenck does have a history of gun-related charges. Several guns were confiscated during a call back in 2009 at Schenck's home. They were returned by a court order a year later.
