EUCLID, Ohio -- A hostage situation at a medical building in Euclid, Ohio, ended after the gunman shot and killed himself Monday.

The gunman burst into the medical building and held his ex-girlfriend hostage before fatally shooting himself in the head, police said. No one else was hurt.

The man, whose name was withheld until his family could be notified, apparently was determined to force a reconciliation with his ex-girlfriend, police Capt. Dave Brooks said.

Workers at the Euclid Medical Plaza told WEWS-TV in Cleveland that the gunman entered a chiropractor's office on the third floor of the nine-floor building at about 9 a.m. They said held a doctor and his ex-girlfriend hostage for about 90 minutes.
