LOS ANGELES (AP) Long Beach police officers shot and wounded an off-duty Los Angeles police officer early Wednesday, authorities said.
Officer Jason Geggie was shot after Long Beach officers responded to a call about a person brandishing a gun while walking down the street, Long Beach police said.
Long Beach police Sgt. Dina Zapalski said Geggie pointed a gun toward officers. The Long Beach officer who fired his weapon was placed on standard three-day administrative leave, she said.
Geggie, a Long Beach resident currently assigned to the Los Angeles Police Department's central traffic division, was in stable condition at a local hospital with wounds to his arm and torso, Long Beach police said.
