San Diego Police Shooting: One Officer Killed, One in Surgery
A police officer was fatally shot and another seriously injured during a traffic stop in San Diego late Thursday, officials said. San Diego Police said early Friday that one person was in custody, but told residents to stay indoors while they searched the area for other potential suspects.
SWAT vehicles, helicopters and patrol cars were involved in the extensive operation.
The injured officer was in surgery and the police department urged the public to “keep him in your prayers.”
San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman told a press conference that her department was hopeful the officer would survive.
The force confirmed in a tweet early Friday that the second officer had died.
