At 2:46 pm the Orrville Police Department received a telephone call from a citizen who was present inside the residence and heard Brian Edward Marock state he ingested an unknown amount of prescription pills to kill himself. Also, the citizen witnessed Mr. Marock place an object to barricade the door to his residence. Additionally, an acquaintance of Mr. Marock informed an officer that Mr. Marock stated he had a .22 caliber handgun and would shoot anyone who came to the door. Mr. Marock was distraught over his relationship with his girlfriend.
Officers responded to the scene and set up a perimeter. Negotiators began immediate talks with Mr. Marock. Officers began evacuating numerous citizens from neighboring townhouses to safety. Evacuated citizens had the option to seek shelter at Schmid Hall.
Members of the Orrville Special Response Team arrived on scene and took control of the inner perimeter while negotiations continued. At 5:22 pm negotiators were able to convince Mr. Marock to surrender without incident. The Special Response Team searched the inside of the residence and no one else was discovered inside the residence. However, an air soft handgun was discovered that had the appearance of an authentic handgun.
Mr. Marock was placed under arrest and transported to Dunlap Community Hospital for medical treatment. Mr. Marock was later transported to the Wayne County Justice Center and released to the custody of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department. The Wayne County Prosecutors Office will be contacted regarding the filing of charges.
