An Ohio man who opened fire on two Middlefield Police officers who returned fire and killed him "just didn't like authority," his attorney told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Officers Brandon Savage and Erin Thomas pulled over James Gilkerson shortly before 6 p.m. Sunday. Gilkerson opened fire on the officers with a semi-automatic rifle before they could exit their cruiser. The officers returned fire, killing Gilkerson.

Thomas suffered serious injuries to her left hand. She also suffered a gunshot wound to her left thigh. Savage suffered minor injuries to his left knee from flying fragments of the police car.
