Lieutenant Alfred Stewart was shot and killed while searching for the suspect who had shot and killed California Highway Patrol Officer Larry Wetterling earlier in the day.

He was shot and killed as he arrived at a gas station at the junction of Highway 138 and I-15, in Cajon Pass, at approximately 8:05 am. The subject had just murdered the gas station attendant. Lieutenant Stewart exchanged shots with the man but was fatally wounded. A passerby who witnessed the shooting shot and wounded the subject.

The man was convicted of three counts of first degree murder and sentenced to death. His conviction was later overturned and reduced to life.

Lieutenant Stewart was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran. He is survived by his wife and three children.
