COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Columbus police say two suspects were killed in an early morning shootout with officers.

Police said it happened north of downtown just after 5 a.m. Wednesday as officers were in pursuit of two people reported to be suspects in a slaying last month.

Police said 24-year-old Emanuel Gatewood and 21-year-old Kourtney L. Hahn fired at officers during the pursuit and then engaged in a gunfight with them after stopping. Two officers hit by flying glass were treated at a hospital and released.

Two weapons were found in the SUV occupied by the suspects, who have not been identified by police.

A part of High Street remained closed as officers collected shell casings and other evidence.
