STOCKTON -- Authorities in Stockton are investigating an officer-involved shooting near Cherokee and Waterloo roads.

“Shortly after 7 a.m., we received a call here from a resident that said there was a man outside their house with a gun,” said Andrea Lopez with the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office.

People in a Stockton neighborhood woke up to see a man in his late 60s walking around their street with a gun.

Deputies responded to Florida Avenue and found that man. When they approached him, officials say he raised his gun and pointed it at deputies.

They responded by shooting the man.

First responders took him to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office has identified the suspect as 69-year-old Bobby Ray Moore, who had just moved to Stockton from the Carmichael area.

Now, investigators are combing the scene for evidence, trying to figure out why Moore was walking around with a gun, which they later discovered was loaded.

“We were informed that there was a restraining order,” Lopez said. “We haven’t checked if it’s been filed but we were informed that there was a restraining order and he was outside the residence with a firearm.”

Detectives spent the day knocking on doors and talking to neighbors to piece together the moments just before shots were fired.

“This is a multi-agency investigation. It’s a protocol at this point and it’s quite extensive,” Lopez explained.

Three deputies were involved in the shooting.

The Stockton Police Department and San Joaquin County District Attorney’s Office are assisting the sheriff’s office in their investigation.
