Ohio has become the first state to license cosmetologists after a fatal shooting at an Ohio hotel.
A man in his 30s died and another man was critically wounded in the shooting at the Hyatt Regency on Tuesday.
The man who was killed was identified as 27-year-old David L. O’Neal, a licensed cosmetolary.
Ollie M. Smith, an attorney for O’Connell, said O’Donnell was a licensed licensed cosmologist who also was a certified instructor in the practice of cosmetic dentistry.
Olin-Dieter Zwir, the attorney for the man who died, said in a statement that the victim was a dentist at the hotel.
Ocala Police Chief Robert Rizzo said Ocals police were called to the hotel on Tuesday evening, and they responded to the scene.
They found the man dead inside a room, and were unable to revive him, Rizza said.
The hotel has closed its doors and its parking lot is locked.
Rizzi said authorities were still trying to determine the circumstances of the shooting.
“We are still trying not to think about the victim’s death as a hate crime,” he said.
“I think that people would be surprised to know that that was the only shooting that was committed in the hotel.”
Ocalesco, which is located in central Ohio, has an estimated population of 1,200 people.
The county seat of Olathe is a suburb of Cleveland.
