Police in the Los Angeles suburb say that shortly after 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, a woman in a Mercedes pulled up next to a patrolling officer and said she was being followed.

The Sheriff’s Department says moments later, another car pulled up and a passenger got out and opened fire on the Mercedes.

The officer then shot the gunman.

The man and woman died at the scene. Their names haven’t been released.

A 12-year-old boy in the Mercedes was wounded and hospitalized in stable condition.

There’s no immediate word on a motive for the attack.
