Man, Woman Charged in Shooting of Fullerton Officer

A 29-year-old parolee gang member acquitted two weeks ago in an attempted murder and carjacking case is now being charged with shooting a Fullerton police officer multiple times at close range, the Orange County district attorney’s office said in a statement.

After being pulled over in a routine traffic stop early Sunday, Marcos Allen Bush allegedly pulled out a gun and shot the officer at point-blank range in the chest.

Bush is accused of firing at the officer several more times, hitting him twice in the arm and again in the leg, before speeding from the scene in his vehicle with an unidentified passenger.

Chip Yost has the details.
