Two police officers were shot and killed after a shooting occurred in Ohio Saturday afternoon.

"These were two of the best we had", Morbitzer said. The 17-year-old says police often were called to the home. Morbitzer said they had been responding to a "domestic situation".

The suspect, who has not been identified, was taken into custody and transported to OSU Wexner Medical. "They're true American heroes". Joering was killed at the scene, and Morelli later died at the hospital.

Westerville is 15 miles north of downtown Columbus. The Columbus Division of Police will be handling the investigation.


Ohio Governor John Kasich, who calls Westerville his home town, said the officers' "deaths are a bad tragedy for my hometown of Westerville and all of Ohio".

Westerville police said in a statement that the shootings happened Saturday after officers responded to a 911 hang-up call.

"I am very saddened to learn of the deaths of two of my hometown police officers today", Kasich tweeted. That's why the Fraternal Order of Police works to build continuous public support for the men and women who risk everything so others can be safe.
