A deadly shooting at a Cleveland area restaurant is focusing attention on the issue of domestic violence.

Kevin Allen opened fire on his wife and two daughters at a restaurant after learning his wife planned to leave him.  Records show he had a previous arrest for domestic violence in 1995. 

Statistics show one in every four women will be the victim of domestic violence at some point in their lifetime. The Ohio Domestic Violence Network is a statewide coalition to help women get the help they need.

If you are experiencing any form of domestic violence please call the Ohio Domestic Violence Network.

The National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE
The National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-656-HOPE

They can also be reached on the web at www.odvn.org.
