RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - Members of law enforcement from across the state are expected at a memorial for the California Highway Patrol officer killed last week when a motorist he pulled over grabbed a rifle and opened fire.

The public is invited to attend the 10 a.m. Tuesday service for Andre Moye, Jr. at Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside.

The 34-year-old officer was shot Aug. 12 by a man whose car he was impounding. The gunman was also killed and two responding officers were wounded. Investigators haven't identified a motive for the shooting.

Moye graduated from the highway patrol's academy in March 2017 and had most recently been a motorcycle officer.

His family said working for the highway patrol was Moye's dream job.

A private funeral is planned after the public memorial.
