 A suspect known to police as a gang member was shot and remained in critical condition Monday morning from wounds suffered in an officer-involved shooting in Boyle Heights, police officials said.

The shooting at about 9:45 p.m. Sunday at 4th and Soto streets, according to Los Angeles police Sgt. Michael Morisseau.

“The officers are fine, the suspect was conscious and breathing when transported to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds and a weapon was recovered at the scene,” Morisseau said.

The shooting was during a foot pursuit, LAPD Officer Norma Eisenman said.

The shooting was possibly gang-related, Eisenman said.
