2 Police Officers Shot, 1 Fatally, In San Diego

Updated at 7:46 a.m. ET

One police officer has died and another was injured after being shot in a San Diego neighborhood, authorities said early Friday.

San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman tweeted Friday morning that she had just left the hospital where the second officer had just come out of surgery. The officer is expected to survive.

The shooting occurred late Thursday night. There was no immediate word on the cause of the shooting, which occurred around 11 p.m. PDT in the southeastern part of the city.

Police searched the area for suspects and urged residents to stay indoors.

Video footage showed officers out in force with numerous squad cars with emergency lights flashing lining a street, officers on foot, and a helicopter buzz overhead.

Police spokesmen did not immediately return calls for further comment, but the department said on Twitter that one suspect was in custody and other possible suspects were being sought.

The shooting comes with law officers around the country on alert following the killing of officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge, La., this month.
