VIDEO: San Diego Officer Shot, Suspect Killed After High-Speed Chase

A San Diego police officer shot in the torso following a high-speed pursuit Sunday morning is expected to survive, according to the San Diego Police Department.

The incident started as a high-speed pursuit, when a grey late model Jeep heading southbound on State Route 163 did not yield to lights and sirens while driving approximately 90 miles per hour, Lt. Mike Hastings told NBC San Diego.

Officers lost sight of the suspect's car on State Route 163 at the Mesa College Exit. The suspect's car was found abandoned near the 7700 block of Mesa College Drive. 

The license plate linked the car to one that had been used in several shootings throughout the city over the last several weeks, Hastings said.

The incident turned into a foot pursuit when officers saw a man walking a short distance from where they found the car and approached him. The man then showed a gun and began firing at officers near Highway 163 at Health Center Drive, Hastings said. 

The officer, who hasn't been identified, was shot in her upper body. Officers at the scene rendered medical aid to her, Hastings said, and took her to a nearby hospital. She is in stable condition. 

Two other SDPD officers "fired several rounds" at the suspect, Hastings said, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
