“As they went into the apartment they had been immediately met with gunfire and each officers have been shot,” Chief Morbitzer mentioned at a news conference on Saturday afternoon. He paused several occasions to choke back tears.

Officer Joering, a 16-year veteran of the department, died at the scene. Officer Morelli, a 29-year veteran, was transported to the Ohio State University Wexner Healthcare Center in Columbus in vital condition but later died.

“These have been two of the greatest we had,” the chief said. “This was their calling and they did it right.” He known as the officers “true American heroes.”

A suspect in the shootings was wounded when the officers returned fire, Christa Dickey, a spokeswoman for the city of Westerville, said in a phone interview. He was taken to a hospital and his situation was unknown, she stated.

The shooting occurred in a condominium neighborhood on Crosswind Drive with about 500 residents, according to those who live in the region.

“It’s very sad. All you can do is pray at this point,” a resident, Charline Garrabrant, 75, mentioned in a phone interview. The shooting occurred behind her garage.

Ms. Garrabrant and her husband, Karl Garrabrant, a retired fire chief for nearby Minerva Park, did not hear any gunfire, she said, and did not recognize anything had happened till they saw police vehicles parked nearby and turned on their police scanner to find out far more.

“Around right here it’s constantly been quite quiet,” she said. “I mean, the police have been right here a number of instances for mild disturbances, but not genuinely close to where this occurred.”

Chief Morbitzer said there had been an outpouring of assistance from around the country.

“They knew how to do policing the proper way, both of them,” he mentioned. “Both gave their lives for the protection of other individuals and that’s what they lived and breathed.”

President Trump tweeted his condolences and Gov. John Kasich of Ohio stated on Twitter he was “saddened to understand of the deaths of two of my hometown police officers.”

James P. O’Neill, the commissioner of the New York Police Department, stated on Twitter that it sounded as if the officers have been “ambushed.”

“Everyone need to be as upset about this as America’s law enforcement officers are. No cop, anywhere, ‘signed up’ to be murdered,” he wrote.
