EL CAJON (CNS) - A 28-year-old man was hospitalized in stable condition Wednesday following an officer-involved shooting in El Cajon.
Officers received a disturbance call at Johnson Elementary at 500 W. Madison Ave. at about 11 p.m. Tuesday and attempted to talk with two suspects found on the school campus, according to El Cajon police.
The suspects ran in separate directions when they saw the officers, who gave chase, police said.
As one officer chased one of the suspects around a building, the suspect "jumped out at him," police said, noting that the officer responded by firing one shot, which passed through the suspect's wrist and lodged in his chest.
The suspect was taken to a hospital, where he was listed in stable condition, police said. The second suspect got away.
The officer, who was not injured, is a 26-year-old, six-year veteran of the department, according to police. As a standard procedure, he will be put on paid administrative leave pending an investigation, police said.
About the same time of the shooting, police received a second call about two juveniles tagging just outside Johnson Elementary. Police said officers took them into custody on suspicion of vandalism and curfew violation.
It was not immediately clear whether the two incidents were related.
