Trump tweets condolences for two slain OH police officers

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

Ohio Governor John Kasich, who calls Westerville his home town, said the officers' "deaths are a awful tragedy for my hometown of Westerville and all of Ohio".

"These were two of the best we have", Morbitzer said. "This was their calling, and they did it right", Morbitzer said, choking back tears.

Westerville is 15 miles (24 kilometers) north of downtown Columbus. The Columbus Division of Police will be handling the investigation.

Officials have identified the officers as Officer Anthony Morelli and Officer Eric Joering.

Joering was a 17-year veteran of the Westerville Police Department and Morelli served for 30 years.

The two officers were responding to a 911 call at the address in Westerville.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who is from Westerville, pledged his support for the town and its police department.

One officer died in the shooting.

The City of Westerville has confirmed the second officer shot during a gun battle Saturday has died.
