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.
