Police officers killed investigating 911 call

Westerville Police Officers Anthony Morelli and Eric Joering were killed Saturday when they responded to a dropped 911 call at an apartment on Crosswind Drive.

Westerville Police Chief Joe Morbitzer said officer Joering, 39, died at the scene and Morelli, 54, died at a local hospital. He said the officers were responding to a “potential domestic situation” and were fired on almost as soon as they entered the building to investigate.

A motorcade from the Westerville police station traveled to Riverside hospital to escort Officer Morelli to the medical examiner’s office. It later returned to escort officer Joering to the office.
