All three were rushed to the hospital, where one of the officers was pronounced dead.

One Whittier police officer has died and another officer was wounded in a shooting that also left a male "suspect" injured Monday morning, authorities said.

Sky5 aerial video over the scene showed the driver's side and rear passenger windows of a Whittier police SUV partially shattered, though it was unclear whether that was from gunfire. The slain officer's name was not released.

The second officer was in stable condition.
