RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Police swarmed a vehicle outside a Target store in Riverside, California last night and arrested a big-rig truck driver suspected of killing a cop.

The arrest of Earl Ellis Green, 44, was caught on amateur video byAngel Ruiz and handed over to the Riverside Press-Enterprise. Green was arrested at 8 p.m. on Tuesday and booked on suspicion of murder and violating parole, according to the LA Times.

Green will be charged with first-degree murder, which makes him eligible for the death penalty.

On Sunday, Officer Ryan P. Bonaminio, 27, pursued a stolen semi-truck he suspected of being involved in a hit-and-run. It’s possible the officer was shot with his own gun after a foot chase that led to a city park.
