FINDLAY, Ohio (WTVG) - Owens Community College Findlay campus and three school districts in Hancock County will be closed Thursday as authorities continue to search for a suspect who shot an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper.

Liberty Benton, Findlay, and Van Buren schools will be closed out of caution as police search for Robert Tramaine Hathorn, who allegedly shot a trooper during a traffic stop on I-75 near Findlay late Wednesday night.

Authorities have recovered Hathorn’s vehicle, but he is still at large and considered armed and dangerous.
