An off-duty Los Angeles Police Department officer shot and wounded two people who reportedly tried burglarizing his home early Monday.
The two suspects and the officer were rushed to the hospital, Fox 11 reported. The shooting unfolded around 1 a.m. in Downey, southeast of LA.
The officer confronted the burglary suspects who then "assaulted" him -- so he fired his weapon, LAPD Capt. Andy Neiman told KABC. Neither the officer nor the suspects were immediately named.
The officer was injured in the assault but not shot.
