Two police officers were shot and killed in the Southern California desert town of Palm Springs on Saturday after they were called to a family dispute and came under fire as they arrived on the scene, local police said.

A third officer was wounded in the afternoon shooting, Police Chief Bryan Reyes said at a news conference. Police closed off nearby blocks as they searched for a suspect on Saturday evening.

The officers who were killed were identified as Jose Vega, a 35-year veteran who was due to retire in December, and 27-year-old Lesley Zerebny, who had been an officer for about a year and a half and was the mother of a four-month-old baby.
