Two police officers shot at northern Ohio car dealership

WILLOUGHBY HILLS, Ohio - Two Willoughby Hills police officers were shot at a car dealership Thursday afternoon, police told WCPO sister station WEWS in Cleveland.

The shooting happened at Classic BMW on SOM Center Road in Willoughby Hills, a community northeast of Cleveland.

The officers are in stable condition, police told WEWS. One was shot in the abdomen. The other was shot in the leg. 

The suspect in the shooting was also shot, police said at a news conference. He was in stable condition. 

Administrators at Willoughby South High School told WEWS they were instructed to put the school on lockdown after the shooting.
