SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Sacramento authorities say a man shot and wounded by police during a gunbattle with officers is a 28-year-old suspected in a previous shooting this month.

Police say Armani Lee had been under surveillance by an undercover team and opened fire when officers moved in to arrest him Friday. Officials say an officer ducked to avoid getting hit, then fired back as Lee fled.

Two other officers and a sheriff’s deputy also shot at Lee. He was struck multiple times and hospitalized in stable condition.

The Sacramento Bee reported Saturday (https://bit.ly/2kzCrx9 ) that Lee was wanted for a parole violation and is suspected in a North Sacramento shooting that occurred Feb. 4.

None of the four law enforcement officers involved was injured in the incident.
