CHESTER, Pa. (AP) _ Authorities say an officer shot in an exchange of gunfire that killed a suspect in a city near Philadelphia is listed in good condition at a hospital.

Chester’s police chief says officers tried to stop a vehicle at about 4 p.m. Saturday but someone in the car started shooting and police returned fire.

Chief James Nolan said two people in the car were shot. One died and the other’s condition wasn’t immediately available. A third person in the car was arrested.

At one point, a scuffle broke out among a crowd of onlookers and police used pepper spray.
