Officer Andy Stevens was shot and killed during a traffic stop in a rural area of Yolo County. Officer Stevens, a commercial vehicle inspector, had made a traffic stop near the intersection of County Road 96 at Highway 16. He approached the vehicle and greeted the driver, when he was shot and instantly killed. A bystander who witnessed the incident used Officer Stevens’ police radio to call for assistance.

The suspect fled the scene, but he and a female accomplice, were arrested early the next morning by members of the Placer County Sheriff’s Department. Two male suspects were later convicted of first degree murder for Officer Stevens’ death.

Officer Stevens had served with the California Highway Patrol for 13 years, and was assigned to the Valley Division. He is survived by his wife, Michelle.
