Not something you hear about every day: On duty cops shoot it out with each other, one dies!

A Santa Maria police officer was shot and killed Saturday by a fellow officer who was trying to arrest him for suspected sexual misconduct with a minor, the Santa Maria Times reported.

According to the Santa Maria Police Department, the slain officer was on duty when police tried to take him into custody.

The suspect officer allegedly drew his weapon and fired. "In response, one officer on scene fired at the suspect officer hitting him once," officials said in a news release, according to the Santa Maria Times.
