UPDATE: Elyria police officer killed

Elyria police Patrolman James Kerstetter was killed Monday night after exchanging gunfire with a suspect on West 18th St.

The suspect, whose name has not been released, was killed, too.

Police were called to 18th Street just before 10 p.m. when a woman said a neighbor was naked and  exposed himself to her child and kicked in a window.  Police Chief Duane Whitely said there was gunfire exchanged inside the suspect’s home, and the confrontation moved outside, where more shots were fired.
