A northern Idaho police officer shot by a man who stole his patrol car died of his injuries Tuesday evening, police said.

Sgt. Greg Moore died at 5:50 p.m. at Kootenai Health in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, police spokeswoman Sgt. Christie Wood said in a statement. Moore was shot about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday after checking on a suspicious person in a neighborhood, Coeur d'Alene Police Chief Lee White said.

Police arrested a 26-year-old man after a car chase that reached speeds of 125 mph and ended when a police dog dragged the man from his hiding place underneath a commercial truck.

Jonathan Renfro appeared in court Tuesday afternoon and was charged with attempted murder, theft of a police vehicle, theft of an officer's gun and being a felon with a gun. Bail was set at $2 million. He was held in the Kootenai County, Idaho, jail, the Associated Press reports.

Why are they not rioting and looting in the streets in Idaho?

They are not rioting because it was the officer that was killed instead of the perp.

Another Donut, the reason is this was just a white cop. I am outraged all these people riot and burn due to a police shooting, but do they say one prayer for Sergeant Moore who was assassinated by one of the same type of worthless human being who our law enforcement have to deal with every day. No wonder we can't find applicants to fill L.E. jobs these days, when the media and the outspoken public acts the way they do. What does A.G. Holder have to say about this police involved shooting?
