Whittier cops, 1 suspect hurt in officer-involved shooting

Two Whittier Police officers and a suspect were wounded Monday in an officer-involved shooting.

About 8 a.m., two male officers responded to a crash in the area of Colima Road and Mar Vista in Whittier, Southern California, where allegedly a driver of a stolen auto had struck two other cars at a stop light, Corina said.

The surviving officer is in stable condition, though the suspect's condition was unknown as of noon local time, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office. The drivers had helped the suspect push his vehicle around the corner onto Mar Vista before officers arrived. Police later found out that the auto the man was driving had been reported stolen.

"It's extremely tragic", Corina said.




According to media reports from the scene, a Whittier Police SUV sustained a shattered driver's side window.

Police returned fire, wounding the suspect, Corina said.

A Whittier police officer shot while conducting a traffic crash investigating has died at an area hospital.

Few details have been released about the incident, and it was not immediately clear what prompted the shooting. The suspect, who has not been identified, is a known gang member, he said.
