California Police Officer Fatally Shot; Suspected Shooter Found Dead

A gunman fatally shot a man in a Walmart parking lot in California early Wednesday — and the “armed and dangerous” suspect remains on the loose, police said.

The shooting unfolded at around 4:06 a.m. in the parking lot of the box store in the city of Livermore, cops said.

Officers responding to the incident found the victim with several gunshot wounds to his upper torso.

The man, whose identity was not immediately released, died at the scene.

Investigators identified the suspect as 30-year-old Johnathon Michael Inocencio who fled the scene in either a 2014 white Ford Explorer or a 2000 white and red Tioga motorhome, authorities said. Both vehicles had California license plates.

According to the Livermore Police Department, which put out a photo of the suspect, Inocencio and the victim were involved in a confrontation before the victim was shot multiple times.

Inocencio is “considered armed and dangerous,” according to the department, which said, “If he is seen by the public, we encourage people to call 911 immediately.”

Police described both Inocencio and the victim as “transient” who “reside in the creek area near the crime scene.”

The shooting comes days after a deranged gunman opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, killing 22.
