Officer Andre Moye Jr, I.D.
21641, of Riverside Area, was conducting a traffic stop in
Riverside Monday evening, Aug. 12, 2019, when he was shot by the
driver of the vehicle. Two other CHP officers, Ryan Smith, ID
20668, and Robert Paul, 20945, responded to the scene and were
struck by gunfire during the shootout. Additional CHP units and
the Riverside Police Department responded to the scene. The
suspect was hit by return gunfire and succumbed to his injuries
It was April 6, 1970 when four California Highway Patrol officers
from the Newhall station were gunned down by two career
criminals. The rampage marked a new era for spree killings and
sparked a revolution in safety reforms for officers.
Today, we recognize the four young officers who lost their
lives 50 years ago in what is now known as the Newhall Incident.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused the scheduled memorial service to be
cancelled, but the CAHP placed a wreath on the memorial at the
Newhall office to honor the officers who made the ultimate
sacrifice and whose deaths led to training that has undoubtedly
saved many officers’ lives. Pictured left to right are District 4
Director Jake Johnson, Newhall Area Rep Donny Wilson and CAHP
President Rick LaBeske.
