UPDATE: 2 Police Officers Injured in Columbus Area Shootout
COLUMBUS -- Columbus police spokesperson Sgt. Rich Weiner spoke in a news conference about the shootout between officers and a homicide suspect early Wednesday morning.
This incident started near Brighton and High streets where officers spotted a vehicle that matched the description of a suspect they were looking for out of the April 5 homicide at Howey and Hudson streets.
They threw stop sticks down which took out the SUV's tires, but the suspect kept driving.
Gunfire erupted from that vehicle at officers and their cruisers. Seven Columbus police officers returned fire and shot the male suspect as well as a female dead in the vehicle.
The officers were injured by glass fragments in their neck, arms, and legs. They were able to drive themselves to Riverside Methodist Hospital where they are doing good and are expected to be released today.
Earlier reports that one of the officers was injured by a bullet were incorrect.
Two weapons were recovered from the SUV. One was a handgun; the other was described as a weapon with "high capacity rounds."
Officers have identified the two suspects, but are not yet releasing their names. They are also not releasing the names of the officers involved in the shootout.
Several cars including two firefighters' vehicles were shot up in Station 19's parking lot where the suspects were shot dead.
At least two homes have bullet holes in them as well as other vehicles.
The scene is several blocks and is expected to be closed off until at least the early evening.
