SAN GABRIEL, Calif. (AP) - Police say a Pomona SWAT officer has been shot and seriously wounded while serving a search warrant at a residence in San Gabriel, and a suspect has been arrested.

Officer Shaun Diamond, a 15-year law enforcement veteran, was reported in critical condition Tuesday following surgery for a gunshot wound to the back of the head.

Los Angeles County sheriff's spokeswoman Nicole Nishida says officers took the suspect into custody without returning fire.

He was identified as 36-year-old David Martinez of San Gabriel. He is jailed with bail set at $4 million.

Nishida says the shooting occurred as a multi-agency task force entered the home about 4 a.m.

Pomona police Lt. Mike Keltner says the search warrant was related to a case involving a motorcycle gang. He did not elaborate.
