Suspect killed, officer wounded in Ohio shooting
SPRINGFIELD (AP) — Authorities say a suspect was fatally shot and a police officer wounded when the officer responded to a domestic violence call in southwest Ohio.
The Springfield News-Sun (http://bit.ly/PDNHoF ) reports that Springfield police Chief Steve Moody says the officer found two men and a woman arguing in the street Friday night. Moody says one man had a handgun and gunfire was exchanged when the officer asked the armed man to put the gun down.
The chief says the officer was hit in the abdomen and the suspect also was wounded.
Moody says officers captured the fleeing suspect who later died at a hospital. Police say the officer is expected to recover.
Police in the city about 25 miles northeast of Dayton say no other details are available and authorities are investigating.
