SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - A San Bernardino County sheriff's deputy has been shot and wounded in an attack on a patrol car.
Authorities say the cruiser was attacked at around 10:15 a.m. Tuesday as deputies were heading to serve an eviction notice on Date Street in San Bernardino.
City police Lt. Paul Williams tells KABC-TV that someone opened fire from a car, hitting the patrol car.
TV news reports showed at least three bullet holes in the white patrol car.
Williams says the wounded deputy is hospitalized in stable condition and is expected to recover.
The deputies inside returned fire and Williams says San Bernardino later stopped a car that had bullet holes.
He says the driver ran but was caught and held for questioning.
An elementary school was locked down during the investigation.
