While waiting for a tow truck to arrive, the pick-up driver the suspect entered the vehicle and began firing a rifle at the officer.

Moye graduated from the CHP Academy in March 2017 and was assigned to the Riverside area.

Two responding CHP officers also were shot, Railsback said. That officer is expected to survive, as is the other officer who sustained minor injuries.

John Aresta, police chief in Malverne, New York, and a past president of the New York State Association of Chiefs of Police, said an officer would have nearly no way of knowing a driver's criminal history during a traffic stop.

Dennis Luther told reporters his son, Aaron Luther, 49, of Beaumont, was the man killed in the gunfight with law enforcement around 5:30 p.m. Monday near Box Springs Boulevard and Eastridge Avenue, just west of Interstate 215. Two other CHP officers were hit before the gunman was killed.

Further officers and deputies from the Riverside Sheriff's Department and the Riverside Police Department arrived at the scene and exchanged gunfire with the suspect, eventually striking him.

Riverside police spokesman Ryan Railsback said the motive behind the shooting was unknown. As a felon, he wasn't supposed to have a gun and Dennis Luther said he's not sure how his son came to possess one. The officer who was taken by helicopter was pronounced dead at the hospital, Parker said. The officer was able to broadcast an "officer needs assistance" call.

CHP Commissioner Warren Stanley tweeted his sympathies Monday evening. The suspect grabbed a rifle from the truck and shot the officer. "His mother told me last night that this was dream job, and he loved going to work, and it's what he always wanted to do".
