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.

Two Columbus Police Officers Injured During Pursuit; One Confirmed Shot

CLINTONVILLE -- A Columbus police officer has been shot in the leg after a shootout and pursuit of a possible homicide suspect.

This all started just after 5 a.m. Wednesday in North Columbus near North High Street and North Broadway on Hennepin Ave.

One suspect was dead on the scene when medics arrived. The officer, who was shot in the leg, was taken to Riverside Methodist Hospital reportedly is in stable condition.

FOP President Jason Pappas says another officer drove himself to the hospital and is also in stable condition. That police cruiser has multiple bullet holes in the glass and body of the vehicle.

The FOP President says the officers were targets of gunfire and are lucky to be alive.

Many streets are closed in the area for this large crime scene and police investigation.

This happened in the parking lot of Fire Station 19, which is locked down. The firefighters didn't witness anything, but were awakened by the gunfire. They cannot leave. The first shift firefighters are being reassigned to other fire stations.

From Columbus City Schools Clinton Elementary School, which is at High Street just south of North Broadway, is open, but buses are delayed because of the heavy traffic on West North Broadway. People who are coming to the school need to use back streets.

The Caribou Coffee window has a bullet hole from this shootout with police.
