California Mourns Fallen CHP Officer Killed in Riverside Shootout

Riverside Police

The California Highway Patrol held a tribute today for the officer killed in Monday’s shootout in Riverside.

Bells tolled Wednesday during a solemn CHP ceremony for Andre Moye, who was killed Monday during a shootout.

The tribute for Moye was held at the CHP’s academy in West Sacramento. It came in place of the agency’s plan to celebrate its 90th anniversary.

Authorities are still investigating the incident and what led suspect Aaron Luther to shoot Moye and two other officers.

Those two other officers were wounded but are expected to recover.

Moye is survived by his wife, father, mother, stepfather, and siblings.

Luther had an extensive criminal record and, as a felon, was not legally able to own the rifle he used to shoot the officers.

Relatives said he may have provoked the shootout as a way to commit suicide by cop.
