One San Diego police officer has died and one remains in surgery after a late-night shooting just south of Downtown San Diego. One suspect is in custody and authorities continue to search for other possible suspects, police said.

At a press conference early Friday morning, San Diego Police Department Chief Shelley Zimmerman said the officers were conducting a traffic stop shortly before 11 p.m. Thursday in San Diego's Southcrest neighborhood when the shooting happened.

Shortly after stopping their car, the officers called for emergency cover.

When additional officers arrived on scene, they found both officers, who have not yet been identified, with gunshot wounds. One officer, who suffered multiple gunshot wounds, was taken in a patrol car to Scripps Mercy Hospital in Hillcrest. 


Doctors were unable to save his life.
