LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Long Beach authorities say a 31-year-old man was arrested after an exchange of gunfire in an apartment complex left him and a police officer with non-fatal wounds.

The shooting occurred about 9 p.m. Sunday after a woman called 911 to report a man firing a gun inside the apartment complex.

Police say when officers arrived the man stepped out of an apartment and opened fire on one of them.

Three officers returned fire and the shooter and one of the officers were hit.

Police say the man then dropped his gun, but a struggle to take him into custody followed and another officer suffered minor injuries.

Eric Arroyo of Long Beach was booked for investigation of attempted murder on a police officer.

He and the wounded officer remained hospitalized Monday.
