The two Clermont County Sheriff’s deputies that responded to the home were not able to make contact with the caller when they arrived at the home. 

Gunshots were first heard coming from inside the apartment at about 8.15pm. 

The deputies called for backup as they tried to negotiate with the shooting suspect. 

Two deputies were close to the home when the gunman opened fire again at about 10.30pm and they were both struck by bullets.
