The officers were subsequently told that a witness was in a backyard shed and were shot after opening the shed door. Police returned fire, a standoff ensued and police later confirmed the unidentified gunman was dead.

Authorities say Azucena underwent surgery after being shot in the upper torso and extremities, and is expected to recover. Serrano was saved from serious injury by body armor.
