Police in the Boise (ID) suburb of Meridian say one of its officers was injured and a man was killed Sunday following a traffic stop involving an outstanding felony warrant.

Meridian Police Chief Jeff Lavey says authorities are using drones and police dogs to search for two suspects, a man and a woman, who also ran from the vehicle.

Lavey says Meridian officers tried to stop a suspect on an outstanding felony warrant around 1:40 p.m. Sunday. The man ran from the black Dodge Durango and shot at officers as they pursued him. One officer was shot in the legs but returned fire, killing the suspect.

KTVB-TV reports the shooting happened in a residential neighborhood in Boise.

The officer has been taken to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center where he is scheduled to undergo surgery to remove two bullets from his leg.
