PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Maryland -- Three Prince George's County police officers were shot after being ambushed while responding to call Sunday night.
The officers were called at 6:35 p.m. Sunday to the 1300 block of Capital View Terrace for a home invasion, according to WBAL-TV.
Interim Police Chief Hector Velez told reporters that there was a legitimate call for service, a home invasion, but that the officers came under fire within seconds after arriving at the scene.
The officers returned fire and two men, who were uninjured, were taken into custody. The three wounded officers were taken to Prince George's Hospital Center for treatment.
The officers suffered various degrees of injuries. One who was struck in the chest was saved by his vest and suffered arm and leg injuries; a second officer who was shot in the back was saved by his vest while a third officer was shot in the foot.
"They're going to be fine ... They are in good spirits. They are concerned about each other. They expressed concern for the person that they were responding to for the call for service," Velez said during a news conference. "At this point, they suffered various degrees of injuries, and fortunately, we were able to apprehend two individuals."
The incident is currently under investigation.
