A quick-thinking California Highway Patrol officer may have saved his own life Monday morning after a Thornton man aimed a gun at him, officials said.

The officer, a 10-year veteran with the CHP, was able to wrestle the gun away from the suspect and no shots were fired. Meanwhile, other law enforcement investigators believe the gun may have been used in a recent homicide, CHP spokesman Angel Arceo said Tuesday.
