A group of about 20 Columbus police officers are holding a $1 million ticket sold during the Powerball drawing.

Sandra Neal, Ohio Lottery Commission spokeswoman, said the winners have not yet come forward.
Jim Gilbert, president of the local Fraternal Order of Police, Capital City Lodge No. 9, confirmed that a group of about 20 officers were among the winners.
More than 300,000 Ohioans won some cash, with a Cleveland gas station selling a $2 million ticket and 17 people winning a $10,000 prize.
Lottery officials say two tickets that matched all six numbers to split a record $588 million Powerball jackpot were sold in Arizona and Missouri.
