A California SWAT team has surrounded a house where a gunman allegedly shot and killed two police officers, and wounded a third, on Saturday while responding to a domestic dispute call. The officers were calmly talking to the suspect on the front porch when he suddenly pulled out his gun and opened fire, according to Palm Springs Police Chief Bryan Reyes, AP reported.

"It was a simple family disturbance and he elected to open fire on a few of the guardians of the city," said Reyes, his voice breaking as he spoke to reporters. He said the officers were standing near the front door speaking with the man, "trying to negotiate with the suspect to just comply", when he suddenly began shooting.
