Two Willoughby Hills police officers who were shot at a BMW dealership in Ohio Thursday afternoon are in stable condition, Police Chief Christopher Collins told local news at a press conference late Thursday.
The suspect, who has not been named, is also in stable condition, local news reported.
At 2 p.m. Thursday, police responded to a call from Classic BMW regarding a 30-year-old male who was "possibly under the influence" and "refusing to leave the premises," according to a Willoughby Hills police statement released Friday. The police dispatcher advised the officers that the suspect in question had "multiple outstanding warrants, an extensive criminal history and a caution alert," the statement said.
"There was some conversation between the male, white male, and the officers and at some time during that contact, the suspect drew a handgun and shots were fired," Collins told local news reporters.
One of the officers was flown to MetroHealth hospital via helicopter and the other officer was taken to Hillcrest hospital, Cleveland 19, a local television station, reports.
The police department is investigating the incident alongside the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
