BOISE, Idaho (AP) An Idaho police officer who was wounded in a shootout with a suspect on Sunday is in good condition after undergoing surgery.

The Meridian Police Department says a second male suspect who was with the suspect killed in the shootout also has turned himself in. Police are not releasing his name at this time.

A female suspect is still at large, but police do not believe there is a danger to the public.

Meridian Police say officers tried to stop a suspect on an outstanding felony warrant around 1:40 p.m. Sunday. The man ran from the vehicle and shot at officers as they pursued him. One officer was shot in the legs but returned fire, killing the suspect.

The shooting happened in a residential neighborhood in Boise.
