SAN DIEGO, Calif. — Two people were killed and six wounded, including a state drug agent, during an incident Saturday night that began with the surveillance of two drug suspects and ended with a suspect running onto Interstate 805 and exchanging gunfire with San Diego police, officials said.

Lt. Kevin Rooney said the incident began when San Diego police responded to a call from agents of the state Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement. The agents had been watching two drug suspects when one suspect went into a home in the Corridor neighborhood and shot six people, one fatally, police said.
