LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania prosecutor says a police officer who used a stun gun was shot twice by a suspect, who was then shot and killed by another officer.

Police in Lancaster say officers had gone to the home shortly before 1 p.m. Tuesday to try to serve a warrant on a man but an exchange of gunfire followed.

District Attorney Craig Stedman said the suspect refused to comply with verbal commands to surrender, so the first officer used a stun gun on him but was shot twice by the suspect.

Stedman said another officer then entered and “responded appropriately” by shooting the suspect, who was killed. His name wasn’t released.

Police chief Keith Sadler said the officer was shot in the hand and shoulder and was in “pretty good condition.”
