SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A Sioux City police officer is recovering after being wounded by a suspect who also shot and wounded himself before his arrest.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/20CBsyU ) the incident happened Saturday morning when officers were following up on a number of reported robberies and burglaries.

While at an apartment, an 18-year-old man shot and wounded a 13-year veteran of the police force. The man also hurt himself.

The wounded officer was treated at a local hospital and released.

The 18-year-old suspect remained in custody Sunday. He hadn’t yet appeared in court to be formally charged, so he doesn’t have a lawyer representing him yet.

The last time a Sioux City officer was shot and wounded in the line of duty was October 2014.
