A gang member paroled from jail only days ago shot and killed a Whittier police officer who was answering a report of a traffic accident and wounded his partner Monday before being wounded himself, authorities said.
Whittier police identified the fallen officer as Keith Boyer.
Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said a suspect rear-ended a couple of cars on Colima Road in the city's Friendly Hills neighborhood around 8:30 a.m.
The suspect then asked one of the drivers involved in the wreck to help push his car around the corner to Mar Vista Street.
When the two Whittier officers arrived on scene, one of the drivers involved in the accident told the officers that the suspect responsible for the wreck was around the corner.
The officers walked over to the suspect, who was sitting in a car, which was reportedly stolen. LASD Lt. John Corina described the suspect as a known gang member who had tattoos on his face and neck and was wearing "gang attire."
Corina said the officers got the suspect out of the vehicle and were in the process of patting him down for possible weapons.
That's when the suspect opened fire with an automatic handgun, striking both officers. At least one of the officers returned fire, hitting the suspect.
