Lt. Carl Minden with the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office reports that an officer with the Jacksonville SWAT team was shot this morning, along with a suspect, during a pre-dawn narcotics raid. The officer has non-life-threatening injuries, Minden said, but the suspect was seriously injured and is undergoing surgery. 

Minden said that around 6:20 a.m., narcotics officers with the Jacksonville Police Department, the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office and DEA agents where executing a search warrant in the 2300 block of Backbone Road, near Cabot. Members of the Jacksonville SWAT team were brought out to make entry into the house. When they entered, Minden said, a suspect inside opened fire, striking one of the officers. The officers returned fire, striking the suspect. The suspect was taken into custody and both the suspect and the officer were transported to local hospitals. Minden said the suspect is in serious condition, while the officer — who was struck in a spot not covered by his body armor —  is still undergoing treatment.
