Police: Three officers shot in Palm Springs

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) UPDATE: Police Chief Bryan Reyes says three officers in Palm Springs, California, were trying to resolve a family dispute Sunday when a man fatally shot two of them and wounded the third.

Reyes said the officers were talking calmly to the man, trying to resolve things when he suddenly opened fire on them. Reyes said the gunman is still at large and may be in the home where the shooting occurred.

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) – Palm Springs police say three officers have been shot but there’s no word on their conditions.

A police statement says the shooting occurred Saturday afternoon north of Racquet Club Road and east of Sunrise Way.

There are no immediate details of the shooting, which comes days after a Los Angeles County sheriff’s sergeant was shot and killed in the high desert town of Lancaster.

Sgt. Steve Owen was answering a burglary call when sheriff’s officials say he was shot and wounded by a man who then stood over him and shot him four more times.

A paroled robber has been charged with the murder.
