Tragedy Involving Officer with California Highway Patrol: 'Bullets Flew Through Windows'

Two Officers and Suspect Hurt During Riverside Gun Fight

On social media, the Riverside Police, CHP and Riverside Sheriff's Office departments all shared doctored images of their logos with black arm bands across them in respect for the slain officer.

Dance said two other officers who were shot in the legs are expected to recover.

Dozens saluted as the officer's flag-draped body was removed from a hospital and placed in a hearse. Tributes and condolences have poured in for Moye following his death.

However, family members identified the officer as 33-year-old Andre Moye, Jr., who was married and had been with the CHP about four years, KABC-TV reported.

He graduated from the CHP Academy on March 3, 2017, and was assigned to the Riverside County area.

CHP Commissioner Warren Stanley tweeted on the night of the shooting: "I am devastated by the tragedy that unfolded earlier in Riverside".

The deadly shooting occurred around 5:35 p.m. Monday as Moye was conducting a routine traffic stop on a 215 Freeway overpass at Eucalyptus Avenue.

The shooter opened fire shortly after 5:30 p.m. after a CHP officer pulled over a white GMC pickup truck and chose to impound it.

Pasco said it's not unusual for officers to impound a auto at the scene, or to let someone return to his or her vehicle.

"She said she heard "pop, pop, pop". gunfire, and then a bullet went through the windshield of her auto", Luther said of his son's wife.
