Trump tweets condolences for two slain OH police officers

Police will hold a press conference around 3:30 p.m. Saturday. President Trump sent thoughts and prayers to the officers, their families, and the police department in a tweet.

"These were two of the best we had. This was their calling and they did it right", said Morbitzer, his voice halting and thick with emotion. The other, 39-year-old Anthony Morelli, died from his injuries later after being transferred to a hospital.
