Black man opens fire in LA

An officer remains in stable condition Sunday after gunfire that broke out during a foot pursuit in South Los Angeles left him and the suspected shooter wounded.

Gang investigators with LAPD's Newton Division tried to pull over a driver just after 9 p.m. Saturday near 51st Street and Long Beach Avenue in South L.A.'s Central-Alameda neighborhood, according to the agency.

But the sole occupant of the vehicle exited and ran, and the officers gave chase for about 100 to 150 yards, Detective Meghan Aguilar told KTLA.

That's when another individual "appeared" and exchanged gunfire with the officers, Aguilar said. That person and one officer sustained gunshot wounds and were soon transported to the hospital, officials said.

Police reported recovering a firearm at the scene.

LAPD Chief Michel Moore described the injured official as an experienced officer who recently joined his division's gang unit.

The officer had to undergo surgery but was in stable condition on Sunday morning, Aguilar said. An update on the alleged shooter's condition was not available.
