A San Diego police officer was killed and another was wounded during a traffic stop late Thursday night, reported Reuters, and a suspect was taken in custody. The dead officer was shot multiple times.

The officers, members of the department’s gang suppression unit, were shot during a traffic stop at about 11 p.m. local time in Southcrest, a southeastern neighborhood of San Diego, the San Diego Union Tribune reported.

The officers were taken to hospitals after the shooting. One of the officers was shot multiple times and died and the other was undergoing surgery early Friday, the newspaper reported.

“It is with a very sad heart that we announce the death of one of our officers tonight,” the department tweeted.

Police took a suspect into custody and searched for other possible suspect or suspects, according to the department’s Twitter account.

The incident comes after eight officers were shot dead in ambushes in Dallas and Baton Rouge in July, putting police departments across the United States on high alert.
