A Lake County sheriff's deputy shot and killed a stabbing suspect late last night, and authorities now say Thomas Hirko was holding a pellet gun when he confronted officers.

The deputies ordered the 54-year-old Hirko to drop the realistic-looking fake firearm. They say he refused and instead raised the gun toward them. At one point, Hirko reportedly said, "It's time to die."

Ohio is joining 47 other states in a nearly half-billion-dollar settlement with mortgage lender and servicer HSBC. 

The settlement will pay cash out to nearly 20,000 borrowers who the states say were victims of mortgage-servicing abuses and loan modifications by HSBC. Dan Tierney with the Ohio Attorney General’s office says a $59 million fund has been created with this settlement.

“There will be relief for these borrowers, about 1,574 in Ohio: refinancing, principal reductions, somebody’s lost their home to foreclosure, they will be eligible for cash payments.”

  U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown met with federal and local officials in Cleveland today to talk about protecting people from lead poisoning.

He said earlier this week his concerns extend beyond  the lead that has shown up in water supplies in Sebring and in Flint, Mich. He notes that in older cities like Cleveland, Akron and Canton, the problem is more often lead in flaking paint in houses and in soil.
