Officers Killed While Investigating 911 Call in Ohio

The Westerville Division of Police confirms two officers have been shot and killed Saturday afternoon on Crosswind Drive. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, someone called 911 from an address in Westerville around noon then hung up. Joering was killed at the scene, and Morelli later died at the hospital.

Police say a suspect is in custody but provided no other details.

Morbitzer, who struggled to hold back tears, described both officers as "true American heroes" who were "always willing to go above and beyond to help out new recruits". "This was their calling and they did it right", said Morbitzer, his voice halting and thick with emotion.

The City of Westerville has confirmed the second officer shot during a gun battle Saturday has died.

The incident occurred at about 11:30 a.m. about 15 miles northeast of Columbus.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich is a Westerville native. "A tragic reminder of the danger men and women protecting us face every day".

Jay McDonald, president of the Ohio Fraternal Order of Police, announced a GoFundMe campaign has already been launched to assist the families of the officers at GoFundMe.com/FOPLodge9HelpFund.
