MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Memphis police say one officer has been killed and another wounded in a shooting.

Police Chief Toney Armstrong said officers went to a home in east Memphis early Friday to serve a drug-related search warrant. He said a suspect opened fire, striking officers Martoiya Lang and William Vromah (VROH'-mah).

Armstrong said officers returned fire, striking a suspect.

Armstrong said Lang died of her injuries and Vromah, who was struck multiple times, was in stable condition at the Regional Medical Center.

Lang, 32, was a mother of four children.

Details on the condition and identify of the suspect were not immediately released. Armstrong said a second person in the home was taken into custody but no charges have yet been filed.
