    Palm Springs police said the condition of the officers was unknown at this time, but one law enforcement source told The Times that one of the officers was in critical condition.

    It seems they keep updating this article:

    http://www.desertsun.com/story/news/...vity/91797350/

    “Frances Serrano, who lives directly across the street from where the shooting took place, spoke to the father of the suspected shooter moments before the incident. The father told Serrano that his son, who has mental issues, had a gun and wanted to shoot cops.

    “He came over and asked for help,” she said.

    Serrano called the police and the father walked back toward his house. Soon after, Serrano heard gunshots. Later police knocked on Serrano's door.

    At 2:45 p.m., Serrano said two officers were on her front patio kneeling on the ground with rifles pointed at the shooter's house.”

    #PalmSprings recap 2: Cops are still in defense positions, rifles in hand. Armored car on scene. Seems like suspect is barricaded in house.

    “Today Palm Springs lost two brave officers," Palm Springs Police Chief Bryan Reyes said at a news conference, his voice shaking with emotion. "I am awake in a nightmare right now."

    The slain police were Lesley Zerebny and Jose Gilbert “Gil” Vega. Reyes said Vega was a 35-year veteran who was due to retire in December and had chosen to work overtime on Saturday. Zerebny is the mother of a 4-month-old baby, he said.

    The officers were at the door of a house when the shooting began, Reyes said.

    "It was a simple family disturbance and he elected to open fire," Reyes said.”
