A Sioux City police officer is wounded and recovering after a gunshot, while trying to arrest the suspect, whom also shot himself.

A Sioux City journal reports that the incident happened when officers were responding to a number of break in and burglary reports.

When responding to a call at an apartment Saturday morning, an 18-year-old had shot the police officer, then also hurt himself after the incident.

The officer was wounded and taken to be treated at the nearest hospital, afterwards being released.

The 18-year-old still remains in custody, having no lawyer representing him, and hasn’t appeared in court to be charged otherwise.
