Man kills dog, self at park

A 58-year-old Maumee man fatally shot his dog and then himself in front of at least two people yesterday while sitting on a park bench near the Maumee River at Side Cut Metropark, Maumee police said.

Thomas Rotterdam, who lived on Piccadilly Lane in Maumee, was pronounced dead at the park by a Maumee firefighter.

The shooting was witnessed by a man and his wife at the park, said Charlie Hunt, an investigator with the Lucas County Coroner's Office.
