An off-duty police officer shot and wounded two men who had assaulted him in the crowded Angel Stadium parking lot after Wednesday night's Rockies-Angels game in Anaheim, Calif., authorities said.

The officer, who was walking with his wife and two children, was hit on the head with beer bottles, police Sgt. Tim Schmidt said. The officer then shot the men with his duty weapon, Martinez said. One man was shot in the chin and was in critical condition, the other was shot in the upper arm and is in serious but stable condition.

The officer was taken to a hospital with a head wound but was released early yesterday.
