Suspect Killed, San Diego Officer Wounded in Gun Battle

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Authorities say San Diego police shot and killed a man suspected of attempted murder after he wounded an officer in a gun battle.

Officers were staking out the area last night with a warrant for the man's arrest when he came out of the apartment and ran back in.

An officer approached the suspect, who then pulled a handgun from his waistband. Authorities say it was not clear whether the man fired first.

A gun battle followed, with the suspect firing several rounds at two officers. The suspect was hit and died at the scene.

One officer was shot and taken to a hospital where he underwent surgery, police said. His injuries are not life-threatening.

Neither the suspect nor the officer has been identified.
