Police: Ohio physician was killed by his 2 sons

Authorities believe an Ohio physician was fatally shot by his two sons last week, according to Fox 8.

Here are five things to know:

1. Richard Warn, DPM, was found dead in his home Aug. 9. He died of multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office.

2. Dr. Warn's wife returned from a vacation and was unable to get inside their home in Beachwood, Ohio. She called police, and officers found Dr. Warn's body inside the house. There were no signs that someone had broken into the home.

3. On the evening of Aug. 10, police officers went to a second home that belonged to Dr. Warn in South Euclid, Ohio, to execute a search warrant. As officers approached the home, someone began shooting at them. After a 12-hour standoff, officers deployed a gas agent and entered the home. Two male suspects, who were identified as Dr. Warn's sons, were found dead inside the home.

4. The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office said Dr. Warn's sons suffered gunshot wounds and ruled their deaths suicide. Beachwood Police Chief Gary Haba said he is confident the evidence will show Dr. Warn was killed by his two sons, according to Fox 8.

5. Investigators do not have a motive for the murder. Although police were called to the Warns' house in Beachwood in the past, Mr. Haba said he would not consider it a problem home, according to the report.
