Massillon police say a gunman shot a doctor, then himself in a parking lot at Affinity Medical Center on Monday.
"He would have been nearly right up on top of him", Moser said. Both were pronounced dead inside the hospital Monday.
Seese, who according to his bio did his undergraduate work at YSU, was confronted at his auto by Michael Wood, who was carrying a handgun.
Courtney Hillard, a patient at the hospital, was waiting in the emergency room when an alarm went off, indicating an active shooter was outside the building. Police have confirmed at least six spent rounds were found in the parking lot.

The Associated Press reported that Seese was the medical director of the Stark Medical Specialties Noninvasive Cardiovascular Lab at the hospital, and also had a medical office.

They hid behind a bed until about 3 p.m. when they were told it was safe to come out. In no circumstance were any of our students or staff in jeopardy. "Again, the safety of our students and staff is our number one priority".
