Police in OH have identified two officers who were fatally shot at a home in a Columbus suburb and say a suspect is in custody.

"These were two of the best we have", Morbitzer said. "They knew how to do policing the right way, both of them". When responding officers arrived, they were fired upon. The suspect was taken into custody, and an investigation into the shooting is ongoing.

One of the officers, 54-year-old Eric Joering, was killed instantly.

Two Ohio officers were fatally shot Saturday after responding to a 911 hang-up, police said.

Westerville sits about 16 miles north of downtown Columbus, Ohio.

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

The Fraternal Order of Police of OH asks anyone who wishes to support the families to donate at GoFundMe.com/FOPLodge9HelpFund.

Westerville, on the northeast side of Columbus, is a suburb of about 39,000 with a per capita income well above the rest of Ohio.
