WKBN learned a doctor shot and killed in a Massillon, Ohio parking lot Monday afternoon was a Springfield High School and Youngstown State graduate.
George Seese, was shot twice while he was walking to his SUV about 2 p.m. outside of Affinity Medical Center, WEWS Channel 5 reported. Both men were rushed inside the hospital where they were later pronounced dead, according to the news station.
Seese, who according to his bio did his undergraduate work at YSU, was confronted at his vehicle by Michael Wood, who was carrying a handgun.
"It appears at this time that he targeted the doctor specifically", Moser said. Officials say the two men had a mutual love interest.
The doctor was taken to the emergency room of the hospital, Affinity Medical Center. Police have confirmed at least six spent rounds were found in the parking lot. The Massillon City School District took immediate action and placed each building in lock down for precautionary measures. It was later determined that the fleeing vehicle was unrelated to the shooting. Massillon City Schools were also put on lockdown during the shooting.
Area schools and the hospital were temporarily placed on lockdown as authorities worked to determine the motive in the case. Police have now notified us that it is safe to come out of lock down. He was the Medical Director of the Stark Medical Specialties Noninvasive Cardiovascular Lab at the hospital in Massillon, located about 50 miles outside of Cleveland.
He is survived by his 13 children ranging from ages five to 32.
