When we arrived on scene, officers had arrested the suspect, 36 year old Gordon Moose, Jr. of Bishop. Inyo Sheriff’s officers said that Moose had reportedly discovered his wife in the company of another man.
The other man’s vehicle was reportedly stranded at the nearby gravel pit where Moose’s wife had driven him to retrieve it, according to detectives.
