A police officer was shot and killed in western Oregon when he attempted to serve a warrant on a male suspect on Friday, local media and police said.

The officer was shot in the downtown area of the city of Seaside at about 9:30 p.m. local time, his force said.

The 39-year-old, who had been with the department for 13 years, died from his wounds, an ABC affiliate in Portland reported.

The suspect was shot by another officer and taken to hospital, according to police in the coastal community of about 6,500 residents, about 80 miles (130 km) west of Portland.
