PHILLIPSBURG, Ohio — An off-duty Trotwood police officer was shot twice Sunday at his home, yet was able to run about a block to seek help at a fire station.

"I heard screaming, then I saw him running down the street kind of stumbling, holding his arm," said 16-year-old James Morris. "He was sprinting as fast as he could run with an injured arm. It scared me pretty bad."
