2 Dead, Officers Injured in Shooting at California Target

September 22, 2015  | 

Police officers were injured and two people fatally shot in a gunfight in the parking lot of a Target store in a Sand City, Calif., shopping center Monday, reports the Monterey Herald.

Around 3:30 p.m., two Sand City police officers attempted to serve warrants on two people when the suspects opened fire on the officers, police said. Both officers were wounded and both suspects were killed, Sand City Police Chief Brian Ferrante and District Attorney Dean Flippo announced in a joint media briefing Monday afternoon at the scene.

"After the officers confronted them, the suspects opened fire," said Ferrante. "Both officers injured were transported to the hospital via ambulance and are in stable condition."

Officers from Seaside, Marina, Monterey, the California Highway Patrol, and the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office aided Sand City police at the scene. No further information was released on the two suspects pending notification of next of kin.
