Two Baton Rouge police officers who were shot during a confrontation with a suspect are in stable condition at an area hospital.

Baton Rouge Police Chief Carl Dabadie Jr. said he does not believe the officers' injuries are life-threatening.

Dabadie said the suspect was also shot and is undergoing surgery.

Police say the suspect led the officers on a 2-mile vehicle chase early Saturday, then exited his vehicle with a rifle and fired at them. The officers returned fire, striking the suspect.
