Popular Cleveland restaurant owner killed during robbery

The latest WKSU morning news headlines: 
Popular Cleveland restaurant owner killed during robbery
Authorities say the owner of a popular Cleveland-area restaurant has been shot and killed during an attempted robbery. Cleveland Heights police say gunfire broke out at Brennan's Colony restaurant and tavern Monday afternoon. Jim Brennan was shot multiple times and later died at an area hospital. No arrests have been made. Investigators say two suspects entered the restaurant in an attempt to rob it when Brennan confronted them. Cleveland Heights Mayor Dennis Wilcox says in a statement that Brennan was a community leader who hosted many charity and sports fundraisers.

Cincinnati abortion clinic ordered to close
A magistrate judge says one of two Cincinnati-area abortion clinics will have to close during a lengthy court battle. Hamilton County Magistrate Michael Bachman's says he will issue a ruling on July 10 forcing the Lebanon Road Surgery Center of Sharonville to close. The legal dispute began in January after the Ohio Department of Health ordered the clinic closed. The department's director at the time decided to revoke its license, questioning whether it had followed rules to provide backup care for patients. The clinic attributes the order to political pressure by anti-abortion activists. The clinic's attorney says she will file an objection. That would send the case back to the same judge whose January ruling allowed the clinic to stay open during a court fight.

KSU, UA, YSU presidents start jobs
It’s the first day on the job for several Northeast Ohio university presidents. Scott Scarborough takes the helm at the University of Akron, Beverly Warren at Kent State University and Jim Tressel at Youngstown State University. Ohio State University's new president, Michael Drake, started his first day on the job Monday. 

Four charged in attacks against Amish 
Deputies say three young men and a 17-year-old have been arrested in a spree of attacks and burglaries against the Amish in northeastern Ohio. The Geauga County sheriff's office says the four were involved in a string of break-ins beginning in May. Authorities say that the four targeted mostly Amish-owned businesses but were only coming away with small amounts. The four then decided to rob Amish people while they were riding in buggies. They were caught after bragging about what they did.

Trumbull County commissioner dies
Trumbull County Commissioner Paul Heltzel has died following an extended illness. The 69-year-old lawyer was a Democrat who was elected to three four-year terms beginning in 2004. His top issues were the county 911 system and economic development. Trumbull County Democratic Party leaders will pick his temporary successor and voters in November will chose the man or woman who will finish the two years remaining in his term.
