Shootout kills California officer suspect

A California Highway Patrol (CHP) officer was killed along with the suspect in the shooting and two other officers were wounded during a shootout in southern California on Monday evening, police and news media reported.

Officer Moye served as a member of the CHP for almost three years. According to Riverside Police, a suspect and a CHP officer exchanged gun fire which resulted in the multiple injuries.

The extent of injuries on the two CHP officers has not been made immediately available.

The shootout occurred around 5:30 p.m. (0030 GMT) in Riverside, California, about 55 miles (86 km) east of Los Angeles just off U.S. Interstate 215, CHP Assistant Chief Scott Parker said at a press conference.

"Our hearts ache over the tragic loss", Gov. Gavin Newsom tweeted, expressing his condolences for Officer Andre Moye Jr., 33. The suspect grabbed a rifle from the truck and shot the officer. Moye had determined the vehicle needed to be impounded and was filling out the paperwork when the driver grabbed a rifle and opened fire, CHP said.

"It was a long and horrific gun battle", the chief said.
