Officers down in Palm Springs:

Two Palm Springs police officers died, and another was injured after they had responded to a family disturbance call Saturday that set off hours of panic in the desert resort town. The shooting occurred shortly after noon, when officers rushed to the house near the Palm Springs Country Club after a woman reported a problem with her adult son.

Early Sunday, police arrested John Felix, 26, of Palm Springs, who was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries that appeared to be not life-threatening.
