A SWAT officer runs down a back alley as police surround a home after a San Diego police officer was fatally shot and another was wounded late on Thursday, in San DiegoBy Mike Blake SAN DIEGO (Reuters) - A man suspected of opening fire on two San Diego police officers, killing one and severely wounding the other, has been arrested and charged with murder after a gunfight that left the accused gunman hospitalized, police said on Friday. A second man was arrested on an outstanding warrant near a house that a police SWAT team had surrounded in the aftermath of Thursday night's gun battle, but whether he was connected with the shooting was still under investigation, police said. The two officers, members of the department's anti-gang unit, were shot moments after stopping at least one person in a high-crime neighborhood of southeastern San Diego, Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman said at a news conference.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton departs her bus with former president Bill Clinton at K'NEX in Hatfield, PennsylvaniaBy Amanda Becker HARRISBURG, Pa. (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took her newly energized White House bid on the road on Friday for a tour of crucial "Rust Belt" states Pennsylvania and Ohio, but the campaign's focus was clouded by a newly disclosed cyber attack. Reuters on Friday reported that the computer network used by Clinton's campaign, which is based in Brooklyn, had been hacked as part of a broad cyber attack on Democratic political organizations, citing people familiar with the matter. The campaign said a data program maintained by the Democratic National Committee and used by the campaign and other entities was accessed as part of a cyber attack on the DNC.
