Illegal Alien Sought in Shooting Death of California Police Officer

An illegal alien is a primary suspect in the shooting death of a police officer in Newman, California.

ABC News reports:

A search is underway for the man that deputies believe shot and killed Newman, California police Corporal Ronil “Ron” Singh early Wednesday morning.

In a Thursday news conference, Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson says his department will not release the name of the man suspected of the crime but say they believe they know who he is.

More details on the suspect were provided by police in a news conference.

The Sacramento Bee reports:

Speaking at a news conference in Newman Thursday morning, Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson said he believed the suspect was still in the area, although he would not elaborate.

“We will find him, we will arrest him and we will bring him to justice,” he said.

Singh, 33, was shot and killed at 1 a.m. Wednesday after pulling over a suspected drunk driver at Merced Street and Eucalyptus Avenue.

Christianson said investigators have identified the suspect, and that he was in the country illegally.

An organization that helps families of fallen police officers shared a Christmas Day picture of the slain police officer and his family.

President Trump also commented on the shooting in a Tweet:

This tragic shooting is another example of the consequences of failed Democrat policies, such as sanctuary cities, and resistance to building the wall.

In fact, California is a sanctuary state and legislative proof of putting illegal aliens before the safety and security of the legal residents of the Golden State.
