*Update: Shootout on the 215 in Riverside kills CHP officer,Wounds 2 Others

 

A shootout near a freeway killed a California Highway Patrol officer and wounded two others Monday before the gunman was fatally shot, authorities said.

The officer-involved shooting occurred about 5:35 p.m. in the area of Box Springs Boulevard and Eastridge Avenue, just west of Interstate 215.

The shooting stemmed from a traffic stop initiated by a CHP officer, according to Riverside Police Department Officer Ryan Railsback. He didn't immediately know why the car was stopped.

The CHP decided to impound the truck and a tow had been called when the driver reached into the back of his pickup — apparently to retrieve personal items — but instead grabbed a rifle and opened fire, authorities said.

Three CHP officers were shot. Video showed one officer being taken away in a police car. Another was taken to the hospital by helicopter.

California Highway Patrol Officer Andre Moye, 33, was shot and killed when a gun battle erupted on a traffic stop. Two other CHP officers were wounded, one critically. The suspect is dead. 

Officer Moye was a son, a brother, and a friend. He was a husband. 

He was real, with real people who loved him

Aaron Luther, 49, of Beaumont, was killed in a shootout that involved seven officers from three different law-enforcement agencies.
