By The Associated Press

COPLEY, Ohio (AP) ' An Ohio woman says she tried to hide an 11-year-old boy from a gunman who fatally shot him and six other people before being killed by police.

Melonie Bagley tells the Akron Beacon Journal newspaper and WEWS-TV she didn't know the boy who ran to her home yelling for help Aug. 7 in Copley Township, outside Akron. She says she hid Scott Dieter with three of her children in her basement but gunman Michael Hance forced his way inside.

Bagley says Hance asked where the boy was before finding him and shooting him. She says she led her children up the stairs away from Hance but her 9-year-old son stayed with the young stranger to try to help him.

Also killed in Hance's rampage was Scott's father, Craig Dieter, of Walton, Ky.

Hance was killed soon after.
