One man is dead and another is in jail after a confrontation that began when San Diego police officers Thursday sought to serve a felony warrant on two ex-convicts, police officials said.

No officers were hurt.

Police were serving the warrant on an apartment complex near San Diego State. One person at the address was shot by police and another person fled but was arrested hours later hiding under a house, officials said.

The shooting occurred when officers felt one of the ex-convicts was reaching for a weapon.

A hospital in the area was on lock-down briefly when police thought the second man may have fled in its direction.
