Memorial to be built in Westerville in honor of Officers Morelli and Joering

WESTERVILLE, OH (WCMH) — A memorial will be built at First Responders Park in Westerville in honor of fallen officers Anthony Morelli and Eric Joering.

The memorial was announced Tuesday evening during a vigil dedicated to the two officers.

Just about everyone NBC4 talked to at the vigil said they know one of the officers. The pain of those lives lost is still there, several days later.

Officers Morelli and Joering were shot and killed Saturday while responding to a domestic violence situation in Westerville. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
