Two Washington state police officers were shot and have been hospitalized after an exchange of gunfire just west of Seattle that left a 53-year-old Bremerton man dead.

Authorities say the Bremerton police officers at about 1:15 a.m. Sunday approached the man in an SUV at a city park. He was believed to have violated a domestic-violence protective order.

Bremerton Police Chief Steve Strachan says the man opened fire, hitting one officer with at least two rounds in the abdomen and the other in the waist.

Strachan says the officers returned fire, and the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Both officers were transported to a nearby hospital. Their conditions and names haven't been released.

The name of the man killed also hasn't been released.

Authorities are investigating.
