A California Highway Patrol officer was shot in the leg during a gun battle with murder suspects at the end of a high-speed pursuit in San Bernardino County on Thursday.

One murder suspect was killed and another was wounded during the midday gunfire in a shopping center parking lot.

The high-speed chase began in Yucca Valley, where a person was shot to death in a failed carjacking attempt at about 11:40 a.m. CHP officers pursued a silver sedan down Highway 62 and onto Interstate 10. The vehicle exited in San Bernardino and turned onto Hospitality Lane and finally Carnegie Drive.

The suspects opened fire on officers and San Bernardino County Sheriff's deputies, reports the Press-Enterprise.
