    1 Officer Dead, 2 Injured In Shooting On Riverside Freeway

    According to police, a California Highway Patrol officer made a traffic stop around 5:37 p.m. — in the area of Eastridge Avenue and Box Springs Boulevard on the 215 Freeway — of a white GMC pick-up truck. The officer determined he was going to impound the vehicle, so he called a tow truck and was filling out paperwork when a male suspect entered the vehicle and pulled out an unknown-caliber rifle and began firing at the officer. The officer later died of his wounds.

    Aerial views from SKY9 showed patrol cruisers with bullet holes and a white truck said to belong to the suspect.

    The officer was struck by gunfire, but was able to broadcast a call for help. The first officers on the scene were two CHP officers who immediately engaged in gunfire with the suspect. The two officers were struck — one received major injuries and is in critical condition, the other with minor injuries. Multiple officers from Riverside Police Department and deputies from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department arrived on scene and also began exchanging gunfire with the suspect.

    The incident began when a California Highway Patrol officer was shot after pulling over a vehicle near I-215 and Eastridge Avenue, according to Riverside Police spokesman Ryan Railsback.
    The officer put out a call for help which brought officers from CHP, Riverside Police and the Riverside County Sheriff's Department to the scene, Railsback said. The officers exchanged gunfire with the suspect, who was shot and later pronounced dead at a hospital, Railsback said.
    The slain officer has been identified by California Gov. Gavin Newsom as 34-year-old Andre Moye.
    Moye served as a CHP officer for nearly three years and was assigned to Riverside after graduating from the CHP Academy in 2017, a release from Newsom's office said.

    Video from media helicopters above the scene showed one officer being rescued by other officers and dragged to the safety of a patrol vehicle. A second CHP officer was seen lying near the suspect’s vehicle and was also rescued and airlifted to a hospital.

    Cell phone from a witness showed the suspect walking to the CHP patrol vehicle and firing multiple rounds as he stood directly in front.

    Officials confirmed several bystanders were injured by shrapnel from the flying debris.

    Whether he was gliding through a zip line course with his wife in Mexico or hopping onto his motorcycle outside the California Highway Patrol’s Riverside station, Andre Moye was often wearing an infectious smile.

    Those who worked alongside Moye said he was an avid dirt biker who had competed in motocross events and long dreamed of patrolling California as a motorcycle cop. Weaver said he was “the kind of guy that you’re always happy to see at work. He was always happy to be here.”

    Capt. John Tyler, who oversees the Riverside station, said Moye could often be found polishing his department-issue Harley-Davidson in the back of the building. Despite only serving as a motor officer for a year, Tyler said Moye had already become a regular presence at community events and would often display his precise riding skill to onlookers.

    “He was very charismatic,” Tyler said. “He was a true hero.”
