Officer, gunman killed in California highway shootout”

A CHP dispatcher confirmed the shootout and the fatalities happened about at about 5:30 p.m. (0030 GMT) in Riverside, California, about 55 miles (86 km) east of Los Angeles just off U.S. Interstate 215.

A CHP officer was doing paperwork to impound the pickup truck when the man reached in, grabbed a rifle and fatally wounded the officer, authorities said.

Riverside Police officer Ryan Railsback told local media that the motive behind the shooting was not yet known. Two other CHP officers were injured before the gunfire ended.

"He was so kind", his stepmother, Debbie Howard, told KTVU-TV. The officers exchanged gunfire with the suspect, who was shot, Railsback said. You're not going to hear one bad word about him.

Other officers soon arrived at the scene, as The Times reported - and witnesses later described a scene of chaos.

One of the CHP officers was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

"Our hearts ache over the tragic loss", Gov. Gavin Newsom tweeted, expressing his condolences for Officer Andre Moye Jr., 33.

The driver then pulled a rifle from inside their auto and began firing at the patrolman, according to the report.

Video from the scene shows bullet holes in the front windshields of two CHP cars.

At least one other person, a civilian who was not in the immediate area of the shooting scene, was injured in the shooting but it is not believed they were struck by a bullet, Railsback said.

"She said she heard "pop, pop, pop". gunfire, and then a bullet went through the windshield of her vehicle", Luther said. "I told my kids to get down and duck but they couldn't, their seatbelts were on", she said.

Charles Childress, 56, a retired Marine from Moreno Valley, was in the auto behind her.

Investigators did not immediately release detailed information on the traffic stop or on the suspected gunman.

Dozens lined up to salute the officer's flag-draped casket as he was moved from the hospital to a hearse late Monday evening. Then motorcycle officers escorted the hearse in a procession to the county coroner's office.
