Two police officers in San Diego, Calif., were shot late Thursday, according to the San Diego Police Department, which said on its Twitter page that it already has one suspect is custody. A search is underway for other possible suspects and the police department advised Southcrest neighborhood residents "to shelter in place." The officers were taken to the hospital, but their condition wasn't immediately available, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune newspaper. The incident comes after the July 7 ambush killing of five Dallas Police Department officers by a 25-year-old sniper who said he was angry about black men being shot to death by police officers.
