A San Diego police officer was fatally shot and another was wounded late on Thursday, the police department said on Friday, adding one suspect was taken into custody.

The officers, members of the department’s gang suppression unit, were shot during a traffic stop at about 11 p.m. PDT (0600 GMT) in Southcrest, a neighborhood in southeast San Diego, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. The officers were taken to hospitals.  

“It is with a very sad heart that we announce the death of one of our officers tonight,” the department said on Friday on its Twitter feed.

The second officer underwent surgery and is expected to survive, it said.

The police department added it was searching for other suspects.

The incident comes after eight officers were shot dead in ambushes in Dallas and Baton Rouge in July, putting police departments across the United States on high alert.

  1. Excellent! News like this is always a great start to the weekend.

    This kind of shooting should be considered self-defense. How did the suspect(s) know that the pigs weren’t going to open fire on them for no reason? That happens often enough, and it might even be what actually happened here, prompting the suspect(s) to return fire.

    One way or the other, it was deserved for enforcing laws against victimless crimes and participating in the Blue Wall of Silence.

  2. Good. It’s nice to know that these shootings are increasing. It’s a sign of growing awareness among the population.

  3. Thanks, Laura! Outstanding!!! 🙂

    “A San Diego police officer was fatally shot…”
    (the article I sent said the pigs’ conditions were not known at that time)

    I like this one MUCH better!!!

    “It is with a very sad heart that we announce the death of one of our officers tonight,”

    The only sad thing about this incident is that the other pig survived.
