A Memphis police officer and a carjacking suspect shot each other after a brief struggle near Raleigh on Wednesday afternoon, officials said.

The 30-year-old officer was wearing a protective vest, though, and is expected to be all right, spokesman Sgt. Karen Rudolph said.

He was still at the Regional Medical Center at Memphis late Wednesday. The officer, whose name was not released, joined MPD in April 2011 and is assigned to the Old Allen Station.
