NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio -- “Send the cops now, please.”

That was the demand from 50-year-old Randy Hamilton who called 911 to notify authorities he had shot his wife.

“Please send an ambulance," he continued. "Send everything please. Send everything right now.”

As officers responded to the scene late Tuesday night on Avon Belden Road, authorities on the phone told Hamilton to stand outside with his hands above his head.

“Yes, ma’am,” he replied while saying “please hurry” several times.

Hamilton was waiting at the entrance to his garage when police arrived.

The victim, 45-year-old Michelle Ryals, was found dead in a bedroom. She had been shot in the chest.

Hamilton was taken to the Lorain County Jail and charged with murder.
