ROSEVILLE (AP) — Law enforcement authorities are swarming a neighborhood in a Sacramento suburb searching for a suspect after a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officer was shot and wounded.

In a statement, ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice says the officer is stable and alert after being taken to a local hospital.

Sacramento County Sheriff's Sgt. Lisa Bowman says deputies were dispatched shortly after 3 p.m. Friday, when Roseville police requested help for an officer-involved shooting. KCRA-TV showed aerial images of dozens of law enforcement officers converging on a neighborhood in Roseville, about 20 miles northeast of the state capital.

Calls to Roseville police were not immediately returned. The city's Twitter account posted messages warning residents to stay inside and saying the suspect is armed and dangerous.
