Milan shooting ruled a homicide

A shooting that occurred earlier this month has now been declared a homicide.

The death of Randy Isaacs Sr. 52, of Greendale has now been ruled a homicide. He died on December 4 as a result of a gunshot wound that occurred at a residence at 4383 North County Road 225 East, near Milan. He was taken to Margaret Mary Community Hospital where he died.

A second shooting happened at the same residence just three days later on December 7. Police found Russell Holt, 71, the owner of the residence had suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was airlifted to University Hospital in Cincinnati, where he later died.

Police are investigating both shootings. They are waiting for lab results from articles of evidence that were collected at the scene of the first shooting.

While police are not releasing any additional information at this time, friends of the family say they believe the shootings are related somehow to a domestic dispute.
