2 Little Rock officers shot while serving warrant

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Little Rock police have taken seven people into custody following a drug raid in which two SWAT team members were shot and another officer was injured.

Authorities say the officers were hurt as they tried to serve search warrants about 6:30 a.m. Friday. One officer was shot in the leg and the other was shot in the stomach, but his protective vest prevented serious injury.

The other officer was hurt when a second-floor railing gave way and he fell to the ground.

A man and a woman inside the home also were shot. The man is listed in good condition, but the woman was shot in the upper body and is in serious condition.

Police say the other seven people who were at the apartment were expected to be formally arrested later Friday.
