SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Latest on a shooting that killed a San Diego police officer and wounded another (all times local):
San Diego’s mayor and police chief will answer questions Saturday at the hospital where a wounded officer is recovering after a gunbattle that killed his partner.
The suspected shooter was critically wounded in the Thursday night confrontation in a southeastern neighborhood. A second man described only as a potential suspect was later arrested on an unrelated warrant.
The shooting started after gang detail Officers Jonathan DeGuzman and Wade Irwin stopped someone on the street, but details haven’t been released.
