A San Diego police officer was shot in the torso Sunday morning near a hospital complex, KNSD-TV reported.

She is expected to survive, San Diego police said, and one suspect has been shot and killed.

The shooting started with a high-speed pursuit when a speeding silver Jeep refused to pull over, KNSD reported, prompting police to give chase.

After the female officer was shot near the hospital complex off Highway 163, two other officers shot the suspect, who was declared dead at the scene, police said.

Lt. Mike Hastings said police body cam footage of the incident may be forthcoming.

Initial reports indicated the female officer had been shot in the neck; she was actually hit in the upper torso, police said.
