2 police officers were killed amid an evening shooting in Ohio Saturday, the most recent deaths in a year that has seen a constant flow of cop fatalities in its initial couple of weeks.

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

Officials have identified the officers as Officer Anthony Morelli and Officer Eric Joering. Sadly, he died shortly thereafter.

"These were two of the best we had", Morbitzer said. "This was their calling and they did it right", said Morbitzer, his voice halting and thick with emotion.


The citizens of Westerville have been deeply moved by this loss and are laying flowers on the steps of Westerville Police Headquarters.

According to 10TV, one officer was killed on scene Saturday during a gunfire exchange with a suspect.

"It is with a heavy heart we report a second Westerville officer has been killed in the line of duty".

Linda Keffer, who formerly lived next to the home where the shooting took place, told the Columbus Dispatch it was occupied by a man, a woman and a child - and police were often called there.
