Report: Suspect in CHP shooting was security guard

Report: Suspect in shooting of California Highway Patrol officer was a licensed security guard By The Associated Press

ELK GROVE, Calif. (AP) ' The man suspected of shooting a California Highway Patrol officer was a security guard licensed to carry a weapon on duty, according to a published report.

The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department identified the man involved in Sunday's shooting as 68-year-old Richard Bernard Bisbee. He was later shot and killed by local police.

The Sacramento Bee ( ) on Monday cited state records showing the Elk Grove resident was registered as a security guard and allowed to carry a gun. Telephone and online directories give no home listing for him.

Authorities say Bisbee fired several rounds from a handgun at two CHP officers during a traffic stop on Highway 99 in Elk Grove, south of Sacramento. The officer is expected to recover after he was shot in the hip and left wrist.
