Two police officers in Compton were shot multiple times while sitting in their patrol vehicle by a man who gave no warning. The attack was caught on video and shows the man walking up to the police car and shooting the officers, both deputies stagger out of the car after having been shot in the head. When the male and female deputies were transported to the local hospital they were in critical condition and fighting for their lives.
The suspect is still at large and the local PD is working around the clock to catch the shooter. A crowd of BLM protestors went to the hospital and blocked the entrance and exit of the emergency room. The protestors are chanting “we hope they die” and have made it impossible for emergency vehicles to get through.
Both officers have undergone surgery and are now in stable condition and expected to recover.
