Killed in the shooting were Emmanuel Gatewood, 24, and Kourtney Hahn, 21, Columbus police said.
Gatewood, of Brentnell Avenue, had a history of gun-related crimes and spent nearly two years in prison starting in 2009 on charges of possession of drugs, carrying a concealed weapon and robbery.
In the end, seven officers had fired their weapons, and 11 others had witnessed the shootout, as did several firefighters at the fire station.
The two officers who narrowly escaped bullets fired into their cruiser were injured by shattered glass. Police hadn’t released their names as of late last night. They drove themselves to Riverside Methodist Hospital, where they were treated yesterday morning and released.
It all started because homicide detectives wanted to talk to Gatewood about the shooting death of Lance Glenn, 29, who was killed outside an after-hours bar at 952 E. Hudson St. on April 5.
