President Donald Trump Thursday spoke with the widow and colleagues of Indian-origin police officer Ronil "Ron" Singh who was shot dead allegedly by an illegal immigrant last week in the USA state of California.

A procession carrying fallen cop Ronil Singh's body is pictured on Jan 4.

He came to the United States illegally and was believed to have been fleeing to Mexico when he shot the police officer.

The suspect, Gustavo Perez Arriaga, fled after shooting Singh at a traffic stop, according to the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department. He earned a bachelor's degree in administration of justice two years ago with the goal of becoming a sergeant, said his friend, Modesto police Detective Ra Pouv.

He was arrested two days after the murder as he prepared to flee to Mexico, officials said.

Corporal Singh was a native of Fiji and joined the force in July 2011. He previously served with the Merced County Sheriff's Department, according to California Gov.
