RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Two police officers and a suspect were shot and wounded during an early morning encounter in Virginia’s capital city, according to authorities.

The department’s Force Investigation Team will review the shooting and report its findings to the police chief and commonwealth’s attorney’s office, the statement said.
