FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Three law enforcement officers injured in a shootout in Fresno that left the suspect dead have been released from the hospital.

The Fresno Bee reports that the parole agent, U.S. marshal and Fresno County sheriff's detective were taken to Community Regional Medical Center after Tuesday's shooting with minor injuries and released by the night.

Authorities say the officers were among nine members of a task force who converged on an apartment in the city around 1 p.m. They were trying to arrest 27-year-old Jerry Vue, who was wanted in connection with a kidnapping.

Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer says an armed suspect emerged from a pile of clothes as officers entered the garage and opened fire. He was shot and killed by officers.

The suspect has not been identified.
