A police officer has been killed in a Southern California standoff

One police officer has been killed and another wounded in a standoff in Pomona, California, that began Friday night and continued into Saturday.

The confrontation began when a suspect fled police by car and then by foot. "The suspect ran into an apartment complex and the officers gave chase," said Capt. Christopher Bergner of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. "As he barricaded himself in a bedroom, officers attempted to contact him. He then began firing through the door, striking the two officers."

This incident is not related to the deadly standoff in Yountville, California, Friday evening.
