An off-duty California Highway Patrol officer shot and killed her husband after he "became verbally and physically combative," sheriff's officials said.

The identities of the officer and her husband were not released. The husband was pronounced dead about 11 p.m. Saturday at the scene in the 400 block of Amantha Avenue.

Sheriff's spokesman Deputy Richard Li said he did not know if the off-duty officer was taken into custody or if she would face criminal charges.
