Officer Andre Moye was shot and killed after conducting a traffic stop near the junction of I-215 and Eastridge Avenue in Riverside.

As Officer Moye completed paperwork to impound the vehicle the driver retrieved a rifle from it and opened fire. Despite being mortally wounded, Officer Moye was able to radio for assistance. Officers from the California Highway Patrol, Riverside Police Department, and Riverside County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene and engaged the subject in a prolonged shootout. Two other officers were wounded and the subject was killed.

The subject who shot him was an active member of an outlaw motorcycle gang and had previously served 10 years in prison for attempted murder.

Officer Moye had served with the California Highway Patrol for 3-1/2 years and was assigned to the Riverside Area Office. He is survived by his wife, mother, father, and siblings.

Of course all law enforcement officers are important to me but as I have said in the past, California's Highway Patrol Officers are on California's Interstates and highways. As a CalTrans Equipment Operator that worked the same territories, we find ourselves hand in hand with these brave men and women. As you probably know, CalTrans employees aren't real popular with a lot of the people driving on our States highways. At least three times while doing various tasks in the Eureka Crescent City area, I was harressed and threatened by irate drivers. In each case, a CHP Officer appeared to my relief and each time, the officer made it very clear that any attack on me was an attack on him and that they could be spending time in jail or worse and that their crimes were serious. We respect each other, we support each other and those officers make each and every CalTrans worker more secure and safer in everyway. They are truly our big brothers and sisters. Way too many of them are killed and injured each year. We honor them when they fall as they honor the 200 CalTrans employees that have been killed in the line of duty since 1930.
