A suspect was killed late Sunday night after a shootout with officers from the Anderson (CA) Police Department. One officer was shot but the bullet was stopped by his bulletproof vest.

It happened just before 10 p.m. at the Motel 6 on McMurry Drive near Balls Ferry Road and I-5. Officials say three officers and one sergeant with the Anderson Police Department were investigating a possible stolen vehicle in the area.

During the investigation, officials said the officers exchanged gunfire with the suspect, and both the suspect and an officer were shot. They said the officer was not injured because his U.S. Armor ballistic vest stopped the bullet. The suspect was shot and killed, KRCR TV reports.
