Status of LA Sheriff Deputies Shot in Compton

COMPTON, Calif. (KABC) -- The two Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputies who were shot in the head in an ambush in Compton Saturday are now in stable condition, authorities confirmed Sunday.

A senior official within in the department tells ABC News that one of the deputies, only identified as a 31-year-old mother of a 6-year-old boy, was shot in the jaw and arms but is critical but stable condition.

The other deputy, a 24-year-old man, was struck by gunfire in the forehead, an arm and a hand. He is described as alert. Neither of their names have been released to the public.

Meanwhile, the search continued Sunday for the gunman who shot at the deputies Saturday as they sat in a patrol vehicle outside the Metro Blue station at Willowbrook Avenue and Compton Boulevard.

Looks like their wounds were serious, but both are now in stable condition. Best to both of them. Terrible, absolutely terrible. that this happened.

left. In other words, they had dispersed. Why on earth were those menacing cops following and chasing them, and why arrest them after they'd already left?

11. That depends upon who he is affiliated with.

If the shooter is affiliated with a white supremacist group, don’t bet on it. The report that the shooter was a very dark individual is only of so much use, given the shooter could have easily been wearing black face.

African and Latino gangs don’t ambush police officers, they simply wouldn’t survive that. I also don’t see some random Black person or even a Black relative of a police shooting victim taking an action like shooting police officers.

The shooting sounds like a crime of opportunity to me, that makes me suspicious about the identity of the shooter.

to be accurate. Crime of opportunity? What's the opportunity? This individual walked to the car very much on purpose.
As for "black face," seriously? You think this is going to turn out to be a crime of opportunity committed by an individual in black face? So he is just walking around in black face for no reason?

To get that close to a parked black and white and then to hit the targets various times and not have a fatal result? Just odd.

I don't get crime of opportunity as much as I get a minor shooter -- it feels like a local gang initiation. Bad shooter, young and scared and looking at most at juvie court if his sheet is not way long.

27. Yes, you have that right.

In case you didn’t notice, the shooter had on a hoodie that covered his upper body well.

You prove your point. You claim that Black and Hispanic gangs initiate by shooting police officers in a lethal way, or at all. Those gangs simply wouldn’t survive such a thing, there is zero upside for them. They are far far more likely to initiate by shooting rival gang members. Gangs are not community protectors, they are out for their own interests.

That would bring more heat on them than they desire. LA police would likely know that.

The shootings sound suspiciously like a crime of opportunity to me. Hopefully other cameras caught the shooter before and after the shootings.

26. I live not too far from Compton in Los Angeles County -- about 12 miles.

Here is the latest in local news and this is why I say gang initiation:

Los Angeles Deputy Says Colleagues are Part of Violent Gang

A violent gang of Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies who call themselves “The Executioners” control a patrol station in Compton through force, threats, work slowdowns and acts of revenge against those who speak out, a deputy alleges in a legal claim.

https://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/gang-los-angeles-county-sheriffs-deputies-executioners-compton/2407924/

Since the cops at the Compton substation are the violent gang members, I cannot see if what happened was an initiation that it would bring heat down on them.

This the LA SHERIFF, not the LAPD.

I have serious doubts that it is a gang initiation. Again to my point, shooting police officers by ambush, however foul the police officers are is a no-win proposition for a gang.

https://www.baynews9.com/fl/tampa/news/2020/08/31/whistleblower--deputy-killed-teen-to-join-department-s--gang--

Now if these LASD gang members of THE EXECUTIONERS thought one of their fellow officers might out them, are you saying that they would NOT use violence against them...including shooting them? Maybe set up and youngster in trouble to do the job and promise to cover for him?

These LEOs had a gang initiation in which they killed a Teenager. I say these assholes would not hesitate to shoot one of their own to protect themselves. These LEO assholes has matching NAZI TATOOS. We are not talking your run-of-the mill bigoted asshole that kills we are talking about an organized LEO gang that does this.

being a local resident of the area who wanted to shoot some cops.

The idea that it is some kind of false flag or gang initiation are both pretty unlikely to me. Most likely scenerio is that a single person decided they wanted to shoot the cops and did.

There is something off about this ambush. And...the MSM is not releasing the names of the injured officers. That is odd. Usually when LEO is injured, their names are only withheld long enough to advise family. Their names still have not been revealed.
