Ohio police shoot, kill man who hit officer with car

SYLVANIA, OHIO - Authorities say an Ohio man who hit an officer with a car was shot by police and died from a single shot to the chest.

Police in suburban Toledo say the Sylvania Township officer struck early Thursday is expected to be OK. A second officer was evaluated at a hospital but wasn't hurt.

A coroner identified the driver as 60-year-old Ed Holup, of Sylvania Township.

A deputy police chief tells WTOL-TV that Holup struck an officer who was in a driveway trying to detain him. The official says the suspect tried to hit the officer again, and police fired because they feared they were in danger.

Police say they have been to the home previously.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is reviewing the shooting.
