A trucking company manager called 911 just before he was shot and killed, saying that one of the company's drivers was trying to take off in a truck after being fired.
The manager, Douglas Smith, said the employee had just been let go. Smith's voice was calm until he heard the first shots.
"Shots are being fired," he told the 911 dispatcher. "I need to go downstairs and see what's going on."
Smith, of Toledo, and another employee were killed Wednesday afternoon at Liberty Transportation in Perrysburg Township near Toledo, police said.
