ONTARIO – A California Highway Patrol officer was shot Friday by a man he had pulled over on southbound Interstate 15 near Ontario, a police official said. The officer was in stable condition at Lake Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, said Officer Craig Ansman of the Ontario Police Department. The officer, whose identity has not been released, made initial contact with the man he pulled over and then started walking back to his patrol vehicle, apparently to write a ticket, said Ansman. After the officer had walked a few steps, the motorist got out of the car and started shooting, prompting the officer to return fire, said Ansman.
