One of the two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputies, wounded in an ambush attack on Saturday, held off radioing for help to give her partner emergency medical treatment, despite being shot through the jaw and in both arms herself, a new photo, taken from security footage near the area of the attack shows.
The photo, shared on social media by FOX Los Angeles reporter Bill Melugin, shows the 31-year-old female deputy, covered in blood, assisting her partner, a 27-year-old male, who was also shot. Both deputies, according to later reports, were severely wounded in the attack and both had to undergo emergency surgery.
“LASD & the families of the two ambushed deputies have given me permission to show this graphic photo of the moment after they were shot. I’m told female deputy was shot through jaw, still radioed for help & applied tourniquet to male deputy’s wounds. Both stable now,” Melugin noted.
