An El Centro police officer shot and wounded a suspect Tuesday who reportedly was attacking officers with an officer's baton, according to an officer with the Imperial County Homicide Task Force assigned to investigate the incident.
County sheriff's Sgt. Manuel Garcia said this morning the shooting occurred shortly before midnight when officers responded to a domestic disturbance call in the 1200 block of Hamilton Avenue.
Garcia said two officers arrived and were confronted by Jerome Jordan, 40, who resides there.
Garcia alleged Jordan refused to comply with officers' orders and a struggle commenced, during which Jordan grabbed a baton from one of the officers.
