A California Highway Patrol officer was shot and critically wounded during a traffic stop in the Studio City neighborhood of Los Angeles Monday night.

Investigators said the suspect, who was driving a white Ford Fusion, and the officer got into an altercation during an 8 p.m. traffic stop before the suspect opened fire and drove away from the scene, Fox LA reports.

The officer was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for treatment. The 27-year-old was in critical but stable condition Tuesday and is expected to recover. The name has not been released. 

Two suspects were taken into custody Tuesday after an hours-long manhunt. 

Authorities on Tuesday identified the suspect as 33-year-old Pejhmaun Iraj Khosroabadi. Shortly after authorities officials released his photo, Khosroabadi, along with an alleged accomplice, were seen being taken into custody near a homeless encampment in a Van Nuys neighborhood.
