Two Sacramento, CA, police officers are expected to survive after they were shot Thursday in south Sacramento, and the shooting suspect was killed by officers, the police department said.

The shooting happened about 11 a.m. a block away from the Sacramento Police Department main office, as police were trying to stop a vehicle that was being driven by a man wanted in connection with a double homicide, Sgt. Bryce Heinlein said.

The two officers were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, Sacramento police said. One officer was shot in the chest, but the bullet ricocheted off because he was wearing a bullet-proof vest. The other officer was hit in the leg, officials said. Both are expected to survive, reports KCRA.

God can't help the"stupid". Kevlar can help the smart, that refuse to listen to the stupid, and wear kevlar. The stupid normally learn otherwise.
