Officials say the police standoff near the  Mahoning County Career and Technical Center is over after the suspect has committed suicide.

According to police, the gunshot that prompted the standoff on the 7500 block of Palmyra Road came from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

The standoff placed students and staff at the Mahoning County Career and Technical Center are on a soft lockdown.

Sheriff Jerry Greene tells 21 News a deputy was serving an eviction notice at the home when he heard a gunshot.

"The officer told us to go ahead and drill the lock out. The door swung open and the officer said, "Sheriff's Office." That's when we heard the gun shot, and we just all took off," said Geo Kuriatnyk, who was serving the eviction. 

The county Crisis Response Team, Canfield police, and state troopers were also on the scene.

"A drone was deployed to look in windows, and then the SWAT team made entry," said Sheriff Greene. "The team found the homeowner upstairs deceased. It was an eviction order, unfortunately it is one of our duties we have to do at the Sheriff's Office and this was just a sad event that took place."

Court records show a foreclosure decree was recently issued for that address.

Palmyra Road had been shut down between Ivy Lane and Herbert Road.

The name of the man involved was Michael P. O'Hara.

Bank officials say O'Hara was formerly an employee at General Motors Lordstown as an environmental engineer, but had not worked for the company since 2015.
