An off-duty LAPD Officer was shot early this morning around 12:30 a.m. by Long Beach Police responding to a "person with a gun" call. Few details about what led officers to shoot have come out so far as Long Beach officials are only saying that when officers contacted the suspect, the shooting occurred.

26-year-old Officer Jason Geggie, a one and a half year veteran of the force assigned to the Central Traffic Division, was booked for exhibiting a firearm in a threatening manner both in the presence of police and the public. Geggie was sent to a hospital in stable condition with a shot in the arm and torso area.

The LAPD is conducting an Internal Affairs personnel investigation and the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office is also conducting an independent investigation, which is routine for all "hit" officer involved shootings in Los Angeles County.
