Jeff Simpson says the officers weren't hurt in Friday evening's shooting. He's vice president of Capital City Lodge No. 9 of the Fraternal Order of Police, which represents Columbus officers.
He tells The Columbus Dispatch the shooting happened around 5 p.m. after police learned of shots being fired in a residential neighborhood.
Simpson says the officers became aware of the suspect's presence in a home and an exchange of gunfire occurred, leaving the suspect fatally shot. The suspect was not identified.
He says the four plainclothes officers involved are part of a task force formed to capture robbery and burglary suspects.
An investigation is continuing.
