SAN DIEGO (AP) — Authorities say two police officers have been shot in a San Diego neighborhood, and a suspect is reportedly in custody.

The shooting happened late Thursday night.

Both officers were taken to an area hospital, but one has since died.

According to the department’s Twitter account, the other officer is expected to survive after having surgery this morning.

Police flooded the area in search of suspects, while residents were urged to stay inside.

Police spokesmen did not immediately return calls for further comment, but the department says in a Twitter posting 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, Louisiana, this month.
