OH police officers shot, killed; suspect in custody

Two Westerville, Ohio, police officers were killed Saturday morning while responding to a call, officials said.

"These were two of the best we had. They knew how to do policing the right way, both of them", Morbitzer said.

"As they went into the apartment they were immediately met with gunfire", Morbitzer said, adding that they were informed the matter was a "potential domestic situation".

Police say a suspect is in custody but provided no other details. "They're true American heroes". The second officer died after being taken to a hospital.

Westerville police told Fox News the officers were "responding to a 911 hang-up call" when the shooting occurred.

One suspect is in custody, WHIO reported.

Westerville sits about 16 miles north of downtown Columbus, Ohio. Columbus police have also been brought in to investigate the slayings.
