LOS ANGELES (AP) — A man has been arrested and charged with shooting at two Los Angeles police officers and wounding one of them.

Police said Thursday that 25-year-old Darvin Cook was arrested on Wednesday.

Cook is one of two men suspected of opening fire at the officers last week as they got out of their patrol car to question the men.

One officer was struck multiple times in the chest, wrist and hand. Police say his bulletproof vest likely saved his life. He underwent hand surgery and is expected to fully recover from his injuries.

Cook is charged with attempted murder, shooting at an occupied motor vehicle and possession of a firearm by a felon. Prosecutors allege the shooting was connected to a street gang.

The second suspect is still at large.
