   MOSES LAKE, Wash. (AP) -- The driver who struck and killed a man last week in Moses Lake was an off-duty police officer.


   The Washington State Patrol is investigating the Halloween night fatality, but Police Chief Dean Mitchell told other media outlets there's no indication Officer R.C. Sheats did anything wrong. Mitchell calls it an unfortunate accident.


   The patrol reports 47-year-old Gary C. Kilpatrick of Moses Lake was fatally injured when he ran into traffic in front of Sheats' personal vehicle. The 25-year-old has been on the Moses Lake police force for about a year.
