Police officer shot and killed responding to crash in Whittier, California

Whittier police Officer Keith Boyer during Whittier Police Department’s annual National Night Out at Michigan Park on Aug. 7 2012

A procession was held from the University of California Irvine Medical Center to the Orange County Coroner's Office, where the officer's body was taken for further examination.

The Whittier Police Department has about 125 sworn officers who patrol Whittier and Santa Fe Springs.

In the midst of a pat down, Corina said the man pulled out a gun and started shooting. That homicide and auto theft occurred about 5:30 a.m. Monday at a home in the 1400 block of Volney Drive in the East Los Angeles/City Terrace area, according to Deputy Kimberly Alexander of the Sheriff's Information Bureau.

Corina said police believe the suspect is a gang member. The other drivers helped push the suspect's vehicle around the corner.

South Korea says North Korean regime involved in Kim Jong Nam murder
A fifth North Korean man is already in custody as are an Indonesian woman, a Malaysian man and a woman with a Vietnamese passport. The incident, which South Koreans are calling an assassination, happened last week at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

When officers approached the suspect, he was sitting in his auto.

One thing we do know is this: When police officers respond to any incident, no matter how routine, they don't know whether it might turn into a life-and-death struggle.

Corina said the gunman was driving a stolen vehicle when he collided with two other vehicles on Colima Road.

Detectives recovered a semi-automatic handgun at the scene. "This is a senseless, senseless tragedy that did not need to be", said Chief Jeff Piper. "I didn't think I had any more tears left to cry but obviously I do".

Trump will issue a rewritten travel ban next week
But Washington state and Minnesota challenged the constitutionality of the order, saying the ban illegally targets Muslims.

Piper, who described Boyer as his friend of more than 25 years, said the officer had played the drums in an off-duty band with him at charity events.

Corina didn't immediately know why the gang member had been jailed or why he had been released early. Mejia has a "history of control problems", Katz said. "Enough is enough. Passing these propositions, you're creating these laws that is raising crime". What you have today is an example of that. "People don't want to follow rules, don't care about people".

A spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has confirmed that the wounded officer is in stable condition. AB 109 was signed into law by Gov. He said the county jail system he runs, the largest in the nation, has become a "default state prison". "We're trying to determine if anything else sparked that", he said. Boyer was 53, according to multiple reports.
