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 ( http://bit.ly/ucWsvv) 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.
