WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Palm Beach County deputy and his K-9 partner have been wounded in a shooting.

A sheriff's office spokeswoman says deputies responded Monday to the Casa Del Monte trailer park, where they found a woman had been killed in a domestic-related shooting. 

Deputies set up a perimeter around the area, and the male suspect was crawling through a whole in a wall when he encountered a deputy and his K-9.

The spokeswoman says the suspect shot the deputy once in the leg and the dog twice. The deputy returned fire, killing the suspect.

Officials say the deputy was in surgery Monday night, but the conditions of the deputy and the dog weren't immediately known.
