INDIO, Calif. -

Two people are dead and two Indio police officers are injured after a shooting at an apartment complex near Hoover Elementary School.

In a live news conference seen on News Channel 3 and CBS Local 2, Indio police spokesman Ben Guitron said the shooting happened shortly after 2:30 p.m. at the Las Brisas Apartment Complex, 81950 Hoover Avenue.

He said a man shot into a car at the apartment complex, killing the woman inside. 

He then fought with responding officers from the Indio Police Department, with one of the officers getting hit with his gun.

One officer shot and killed the suspect as he tried to run away, Guitron said.
