A Colorado police officer was seriously wounded when he was shot during a domestic violence incident Wednesday.
Pueblo police responded to a domestic disturbance call involving weapons at a residence shortly after 9:10 a.m., KRDO-TV reports. Officers were able to remove a female from the scene, and they tried to make contact with the suspect.
That's when the suspect began shooting, and an officer was struck by the gunfire. The officer was seriously wounded and rushed to the hospital, where he was expected to recover. According to police, the officer was wearing body armor at the time, but it's not clear if it was struck by the gunfire.
Backup officers and a SWAT unit responded to the scene, and a brief standoff ensued. Police finally were able to get the suspect to exit the house and surrender.
