A South Sacramento California Highway Patrol officer was found dead Tuesday night in his patrol car.
Officer Sean Poore, a nine year veteran of the CHP, was found in his patrol car with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The circumstances surrounding the 31-year-old's death are still under investigation.
CHP Commissioner Warren Stanley issued this statement:
“Law enforcement agencies are traumatized with the death of one of their own. The response is even more devastating when that death comes at the officer’s own hand.”
