SAN DIEGO (AP) - A suspect in a robbery and murder was shot at least once in the torso after firing on two San Diego police officers who were trying to arrest him.

Lt. Paul Rorrison says 30-year-old Ahmed Hassan Mumin survived and was arrested Saturday on suspicion of murder, attempted murder and armed robbery.

It wasn’t immediately clear if he had retained an attorney.

Rorrison says the two officers involved in the shooting were conducting surveillance while investigating a fatal shooting at a business earlier in the week.

When the officers received a 911 call about a robbery in progress, they approached and were fired on by Mumin through a door.

The officers returned fire, hitting Mumin at least once.

The officers have 12 and 25 years of service, respectively.
