Police: Wife shoots Gates Mills officer, kills self at Painesville home

PAINESVILLE, Ohio-- A woman killed herself after shooting her husband at their home in Painesville on Monday.

Dylan Hustosky, 27, called 911 shortly after 4 p.m. to report his wife shot him through the door, Painesville Police Chief Dan Waterman said. An officer arrived at the house on Cedarbrook Drive within 3 minutes and called for help.

Hustosky, an officer for Gates Mills, suffered two gunshot wounds to his arm and was immediately taken to a hospital. He remains in stable condition.

Painesville police tried to contact his wife, but didn't get a response. That's when they called in the SWAT team.

Later, Kayleigh Hustosky, 29, was found dead upstairs with a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to Painesville police.

Waterman said they had no knowledge of any prior disturbances at the house, where the Hustoskys lived for about two years. The couple's 3-year-old was with a relative in Stow at the time and the family dog was not harmed.

The gun used was not Dylan Hustosky's service weapon. According to Waterman, they did not know he was an officer until he was receiving treatment.

Gates Mills Police Chief Gregg Minichello spoke highly of Dylan Hustosky's service, saying, "I wish I had 10 of him." He's been with the department for four and a half years.

Waterman emphasized the case is still under investigation.
