Two San Diego County sheriff’s deputies were wounded in a shooting Wednesday afternoon, prompting a SWAT standoff and evacuation of residents in the beach community of Leucadia, Calif.

Authorities said the suspect killed himself in the early hours of Thursday morning, according to the Associated Press.

The shootings occurred while deputies were reportedly searching for a suspect involved in a vehicle theft, according to KFMB-TV.
