One officer killed, two others injured in shootout in Southern California

California Highway Patrol officials identified the officer killed in Monday's shooting during a traffic stop off a Riverside freeway as 34-year-old Andre Moye.

After an officer on a motorcycle stopped a man driving along the highway on a white GMC pickup truck, the man - at some point - grabbed a rifle from inside his vehicle and fired at the officer who was approaching him.

Two other CHP officers then arrived at the scene and also began firing at the suspect who was shot during the shootout and was later pronounced dead, authorities said.

"One of our officers succumbed to the injuries sustained", the CHP tweeted.

The officer apparently pulled the suspect over Monday evening on the 215 Freeway in Riverside, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Riverside authorities say a CHP officer stopped the suspect driving a GMC pickup truck and then made a decision to impound the vehicle.

The officer returned fire and called for backup from the CHP, Riverside Police and Riverside Sheriff's Office, the Riverside Press-Enterprise reported.

The suspect was killed in a shootout with a fourth officer. The other officer suffered only minor injuries.

The first officer was flown by a helicopter ambulance to a local hospital, where he died, Parker said.

"We don't know his motive for this crime", Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz said. Police say a witness may have also been hit with something, but it doesn't appear to be gunfire.

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

At least two CHP vehicles had visible gunshot damage in the rear windshields at the scene.

Video after the shooting showed bullet holes in the front windows of two patrol cars and large holes blown in their back windows.

Video filmed near the scene captures the sound of shots as the suspect can be seen approaching a CHP auto with what appears to be a rifle.
