LA MESA, Calif. -- San Diego County authorities say a Metropolitan Transit System security officer was shot twice and his gun was stolen at a mall trolley station, and a suspect is at large.
La Mesa police Sgt. Peter Andersson says the officer was shot Saturday night at the Grossmont Center stop after trying to check the suspect's trolley ticket.
Andersson says while the officer was on the ground, the suspect demanded his service pistol and then shot him again with the same gun.
The man then fled up stairs and into the shopping center.
The officer, whose name has not been released, is hospitalized in stable condition Sunday.
