Police in the northeast Ohio city of Akron say officers have shot and killed a 49-year-old man who hours earlier fatally shot his wife.

It was the second police shooting in Akron in less than 24 hours. A 30-year-old man was hospitalized earlier after being shot by officers Friday evening after being ordered to drop a handgun.

The 49-year-old man, who hasn’t been identified, died at a hospital around 12:30 p.m. Saturday.
