  • Law enforcement officers are shown near the scene of a barricaded suspect incident in Pomona

A gunman who shot two police officers, killing one of them, held a SWAT team at bay on Saturday as he barricaded himself inside an apartment and showed no signs of giving up more than 12 hours after the standoff began, authorities said.

Los Angeles County sheriff's Capt. Christopher Bergner says the suspect fired through the door, striking Casillas and another officer.

Outside the Los Angeles County coroner's office, dozens of police cars lined the streets and officers saluted as the slain officer's body was brought there in a procession Saturday morning.

The suspect ran into the apartment complex, entered an apartment and barricaded himself in a bedroom.

Around 9:10 p.m. local time dispatchers received a call of an "officer down", the Los Angeles Times reported.

One of the officers died and the other is undergoing surgery.

A crashed pickup was also at the scene and in an area cordoned off by police, but Bergner did not confirm if that is the vehicle the suspect was driving.

Los Angeles County firefighters rushed the two officers to Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center, where one of them died.

Casillas is the 16th law enforcement officer who was shot and killed this year, according to The Officer Down Memorial Page, which tracks such deaths. Bergner says the other officer was undergoing surgery but was expected to recover.

LASD SWAT and crisis negotiators had spent the night trying to negotiate with the suspect to surrender. "The second officer is in stable condition". Information on a suspect or suspects was not released.

Pomona is a city of about 149,000 north of Chino in eastern Los Angeles County.

Neither of the officers have been identified and the original scene remained active Saturday morning.
