Trump offers condolences to Westerville police officers

Two Ohio police officers were killed in a shooting Saturday afternoon in a Columbus suburb, CBS News reports.

"These were two of the best we have", Morbitzer said.

The suspect was wounded and taken to a hospital, a city spokeswoman said. According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, someone called 911 from an address in Westerville around noon then hung up.

The City of Westerville posted on Twitter, "We are deeply saddened to report that one of our officers has been killed in the line of duty".

Westerville police say in a statement that the shootings happened Saturday after officers responded to a 911 hang-up call around 11:30 a.m.

They were the first Westerville officers killed in the line of duty.

No additional information about the suspect or the incident to which police responded were immediately available.

The investigation is being led by the Columbus Police Department, Morbitzer confirmed. He asked OH residents to join him in "lifting up these officers' families in prayer". 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.
