WESTERVILLE -- A Fraternal Order of Police representative has released more photos of the two Westerville Police officers that were killed Feb. 10, and their families.

Mark Weaver, a crisis communication advisor to the national FOP, the Ohio FOP, and Lodge 9 FOP released the photos on his twitter page.

The officers, Eric Joering and Anthony Morelli, were killed in the line of duty responding to a 911 hangup call.

Central Ohio residents lined streets and highway overpasses during a procession Monday which led the two officers from the county coroner’s office to their respective funeral homes. People honoring the officers included schoolchildren, community members and firefighters.

On Monday, Governor John R. Kasich ordered that all flags be flown at half-staff in honor of the lives and service of the fallen officers. Flags will fly half-staff at all public buildings and grounds throughout the State of Ohio through their interments.

More vigils are planned, including one at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday night at First Responders Park, 374 W. Main St. in Westerville.

The Ohio Fraternal Order of Police has set up a GoFundMe account for the officers' families.
