    CHP officers, suspect shot during gunfight in Riverside CA.

    CHP officers, suspect shot during gunfight in Riverside


    Last updated 8/12/2019 at 6:49pm




    RIVERSIDE - Two California Highway Patrol officers and a gunman were wounded on Monday, Aug. 12 during an exchange of gunfire on the south end of Riverside.


    The officer-involved shooting occurred about 5:35 p.m. in the area of Box Springs Boulevard and Eastridge Avenue, just west of Interstate 215.


    According to Riverside Police Department Officer Ryan Railsback, the CHP officers returned gunfire when shot upon by the man, whose name was not released. The circumstances were unclear.


    Railsback said both officers were hit, though the gravity of their wounds could not immediately be confirmed.


    "One officer was transported to the county hospital in Moreno Valley in our (police) helicopter,'' Railsback told City News Service. "The other officer was taken to the hospital in a CHP unit.''


    According to Railsback, the suspect was "down and neutralized,'' no longer posing a threat. There was no word on his wounds.


    There were indications that several passers-by were hit by flying glass or "shrapnel'' during the gunfire, and Riverside Fire Department paramedics were searching for those parties in the area.

    CHP Officer and Suspect Dead, 2 Other Officers Wounded in Shootout on 215 Overpass in Riverside Area

    POSTED 6:26 PM, AUGUST 12, 2019, BY ERIKA MARTIN, UPDATED AT 08:00PM, AUGUST 12, 2019

    A California Highway Patrol officer and gunman were dead and two other CHP officers were injured following a shootout near the 215 Freeway in the Riverside area Monday, officials said.

    The suspect had grabbed a weapon and started firing after CHP pulled over his vehicle, Riverside Police Officer Ryan Railsback said.

    Railsback could not provide information on the surviving officer's conditions.

    Video shot by a freelance photographer on a 215 Freeway overpass shows two officers on the ground near CHP vehicles.

    Multiple gunshots and sirens can be heard after a Moreno Valley Police Department officer pulls a long gun from the back of his patrol car. He and other officers are positioned behind their vehicles with guns raised.

    Another officer then appears to drag one wounded officer along the pavement, away from the gunfire. Three officers load the wounded man into a Moreno Valley patrol car that pulls up.

    "We need a tourniquet," one of the officers can be heard saying.
    The police car speeds away.

    Another uniformed officer appears to remain at the scene, on the ground, near a CHP motorcycle parked behind a white pickup truck.

    Several other officers carried the officer into a Riverside police helicopter that landed on the overpass. The officer was later seen being wheeled into the Riverside University Health System Medical Center.
    Meanwhile, more officers surrounded the pickup truck with guns drawn.

    Another individual appears to be down on the ground in front of the truck. An officer can be seen tending to the person, but it's not clear if he is alive.

    There was blood visible on the hood of the GMC pickup, and a large long gun could be seen on the sidewalk nearby.

    Several bullet holes could be seen in the windshield of a CHP SUV, and the rear window of a cruiser appeared to have been shot out.

    A young child appeared to be getting medical aide near the scene as well, the video showed. The child was standing and did not appear seriously injured.

    At 6 p.m. CHP said the freeway's auxiliary lanes and off-ramps would be closed at Eucalyptus Avenue for an unknown duration.

    Check back for updates on this developing story.

    UPDATE

    . . . KABC-TV reported that Dennis Luther of Riverside identified the gunman as his son, Aaron Luther, 49. Luther said he watched the shootout on television.

    Its hard. I love him. And Im sorry for the policeman, he told KABC-TV. Im devastated. I just cant believe it.

    Luther said his son served prison time for attempted murder but was released more than a decade ago. He said he didn't know how his son had access to a gun, which is illegal for felons to possess.


    He said his son recently appeared depressed and had knee pain and marital problems. But his son was devoted to his two children and a stepchild, he said.

    He lived for his kids. Thats what motivated him, Luther said.

    So I dont know what overcame him. I mean, I wish I did know.

    UPDATE

    "A law enforcement source told the Los Angeles Times that Luther, 49, was a member of the Vagos motorcycle gang. He had a criminal record that dates back to the 1990s and was released from state prison in 2007, the paper reported.
    His father, Dennis Luther, told KTLA that his son previously served 10 years behind bars for attempted murder."

    The shooter was originally stopped for driving alone in the carpool lane and his truck was being towed for expired plates and registration. TV News.
