The condition of the Los Angeles police officer who was shot early Monday during a domestic violence call was improving Tuesday.

LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said doctors have upgraded Officer Steven Jenkins from critical to serious condition. Jenkins, a 22-year veteran of the department and a member of the LAPD’s canine unit, was shot in the face and shoulder as he and other officers approached a house in the 13600 block of Dronfield Avenue in Sylmar about 2:45 a.m.

Police were summoned to the neighborhood by a woman who called about 10:30 Sunday night to report that her husband had beaten her. Responding firefighters treated the woman for cuts and bruises at a neighbor’s house.

Officers went to the woman’s house and tried to contact her husband, 53-year-old Sergio O. Salazar, who was thought to be inside. He didn’t respond and then opened fire on a team of canine handlers that included Jenkins.
