Baku, October 9 AZERTAC

Two police officers were fatally shot and a third one injured while responding to a family disturbance call Saturday in Palm Springs, California.

According to CNN, the two victims were identified as Jose Gilbert Vega, a 35-year veteran of the department, and Lesley Zerebny, who is the mother of a 4-month-old.

The suspect has not been captured, Reyes said, but police have surrounded a house and "they're going to treat the house as if he's still in it."

"The officers, from what I understand, were at the front (door) trying to negotiate with the suspect to just comply," Reyes said. "It was a simple family disturbance and he elected to open fire on ... guardians of this city."

Vega, a 63-year-old father of eight, had submitted paperwork to retire in December and was working an overtime shift on Saturday, Reyes said.

"Here he is, 35 years in, still pushing a patrol car for our community to make it better," said a visibly emotional Reyes. "On a day he wasn't even designed to work"

Zerebny, 27, had recently returned to duty from maternity leave, Reyes said.

She had worked about a year and a half with the department and was married to a deputy with the Riverside County Sheriff's Office.
