Officer Wendy Reyes says the officer had to have glass fragments removed from his eye. He was treated at a hospital and released.

Officers responded Saturday morning to reports of a prowler near homes in east Hollywood. Reyes says at least three officers chased a suspect and opened fire when he produced a handgun.

The suspect, described as a man in his 50s, was pronounced dead at the scene. His name has not been released.
