BUENA PARK (CBSLA) – Detectives with the Buena Park Police Department have identified a motive in the Sept. 3 shooting of a Buena Park school bus that lead to a fatal officer-involved-shooting.
Authorities said Thursday, in a press release, that Cedric Baxter attempted to murder his estranged wife who was the school bus driver.
The incident occurred just before 2 p.m. A BPPD officer witnessed Baxter firing at the school bus. When the officer attempted to stop Baxter, a pursuit ensued that ended in the Buena Park School District parking lot.
“The pursuit terminated after the suspect drove through a locked fence,” Captain Frank Nunes of the Buena Park Police Department said.
Police said that two officers shot Baxter, killing him. Officers also located a firearm at the scene.
Neither the school bus driver, nor a student on the bus, were injured, nor were any officers.
The school bus driver had an active domestic violence restraining order against Baxter, who had a lengthy criminal history and, at the time of the shooting, was in violation of his parole.
