Michael Christopher Mejia Charged In Slaying of Whittier Officer Keith Boyer --- ===

February 20, 2017 crime: cousin, cop killer crash: deliberate ambush lure killed: 2  injured: 1 terror: ? Michael Christopher Mejia Charged In Slaying of Whittier Officer Keith Boyer Michael Mejia allegedly killed his cousin, stole his car and deliberately crashed it into into two cars. Whittier Officer Keith Boyer was killed when he and another officer were patting down suspect , but he turned around and opened fire. Mejia was shot in the back in the gunfight. Suspect faces two counts of murder and one count each of attempted murder, carjacking and possession of a firearm by a felon. Special circumstances of multiple murders, murder of a police officer and murder to escape arrest make him eligible for the death penalty

Alternative theory: Hispanic gang member kills his cousin as the start of a crime killing spree. He then apparently deliberately crashes into two cars, apparently luring police who respond to the accident in to an accident, shooting two and killing one. His motive is unclear and nothing points to any connection to global terrorism since suspect was in a rage over some issue with his cousin and obviously did not plan to ambush police after crashing into two cars.
