The exact nature of the injuries was not released. Both officers and the suspect were transported to the hospital.
At around 11 AM in Sacramento, two police officers were shot near 27th Avenue and Franklin Boulevard.
The officers responded by shooting the suspect. The suspect’s condition was not released.
Both of those officers have been transported to the hospital.
