MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) - Police are investigating a deadly shooting that happened inside Hillcrest Hospital Friday night.

Mayfield Heights police tell 19 Action News that the shooting occurred just before 9PM and was an apparent murder-suicide.

According to a neighbor, the couple had been married for more than fifty years. Neighbors also say that according to her husband, Dorothy had been sick and in pain...they thought she had a bit of Dementia. "We all knew them as a real nice, quiet couple. It's just sad, it really is" says neighbor Michael Feingold.

No other patients or visitors were harmed during the shooting which remains under investigation.

The hospital is owned and operated by the Cleveland Clinic. The following statement was released late Friday night:

"We are fully cooperating with the Mayfield Heights Police Department investigation. This tragic situation involved a husband and wife and no other patients, visitors or employees were harmed."
