Kristina Ripatti and Tim Pearce joined the Los Angeles Police Department a decade ago, fell in love on the job, married, and went on to become patrol officers in adjacent South Bureau divisions.

On Sunday, Pearce was at his wife's side in a downtown hospital room where she was listed in serious but stable condition after being shot in the chest by a robbery suspect.
