San Diego officer dies; suspect left suicide note

SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego's police chief says an officer shot in the face in an apparently unprovoked attack has died, and investigators have found a suicide note left by the suspect who fired the gun.

Chief William Lansdowne says 36-year-old Jeremy Henwood, a four-year veteran of the department, died Sunday, a day after being shot while sitting in his patrol car at a San Diego intersection.

The armed suspect, 23-year-old Dejon Marquee White, was later shot to death by police as he tried to avoid arrest. Investigators say they have no motives for the shooting. Police say White wrote a two-page suicide note but it didn't say how he was going to kill himself or why.

White was a suspect in a shooting earlier Saturday at an In-N-Out restaurant 14 miles away in El Cajon.

The victim of that shooting is expected to survive.
