WESTERVILLE, OH (WCMH/AP) — The Westerville Division of Police confirms two officers have been shot and killed Saturday afternoon, and a suspect is in custody.

Westerville Police Chief Joe Morbitzer said officer Eric Joering, 39, died at the scene and his colleague, Tony Morelli, 54, died at a local hospital. He said the officers were responding to a “potential domestic situation” and were fired on almost as soon as they entered the building on Crosswind Drive to investigate.
