Local officers wear mourning badges to honor fallen Westerville Police Officers

"In most situations, officers are walking into situations that they don't have all the variables".

As a convicted felon, Smith is prohibited from purchasing or possessing a firearm.

Also Monday, Republican Gov. John Kasich ordered flags flown at half-staff at OH public properties until the officers are interred.

Authorities have not released which type of gun was used in the shooting. A caller told a 911 dispatcher that Reed had poured gasoline on a door of a residence and was stalking a woman, according to a recording provided by Columbus Police.

According to USA Today, it is unclear where Smith is and if he is in custody. "My husband. he shot the police officers".

After Quentin allegedly shot the officers, Candice spoke to the 911 operator while hiding in some nearby bushes.

She said she had a "a lot of stuff" to do, including preparing for the upcoming Spring session and a Throne Speech. Alberta Premier Rachel Notley is encouraging people to sign a petition telling B.C.

The suspect was wounded and taken to a hospital, a city spokeswoman said.

The murders of Mr. Joering and Mr. Morelli punctuate another bad fact; the scourge of domestic violence poses a threat not just to the victims who are being directly attacked but also to society at large.

Police on Monday escorted the bodies of 39-year-old Joering and 54-year-old Morelli from the coroner's office to separate funeral homes. He could be indicted on formal charges including the possibility of a death sentence because the victims were police officers killed in the line of duty, said Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien. Westerville Police Chief Joe Morbitzer said at a news conference Saturday that Joering, a 16-year veteran, and Morelli, a 30-year veteran, were shot immediately upon entering the residence. He is accused of selling a gun last summer to Quentin Smith, who has been charged with shooting the two officers.

A confrontation ensued and Smith lifted up his shirt to show he had a pistol tucked into his waistband, the boyfriend told police.

The Fraternal Order of Police has established a fundraising page to help the Morelli and Joering families, and the city will be holding a vigil Tuesday night at First Responders Park.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions offered his condolences to the officers' families during remarks to the National Sheriff's Association on Monday. He went on to call them "true American heroes".
