Motorcyclist Shot and Killed By Police Identified

The motorcyclist who was shot and killed by police after a pursuit earlier this week has been identified. 

El Dorado County sheriff's investigators say 34-year-old Billy Jo Johnson had a felony warrant out for his arrest when he led a South Lake Tahoe police officer on a chase Monday. 

Johnson allegedly exchanged gunfire with authorities during the pursuit that ended in the county's jurisdiction. Johnson was killed, but no one else was hit by gunfire.

This is still an active investigation.
