Two police officers killed in Palm Springs, California shooting

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.
