A graphic new photo shows the brutal injuries sustained by one of the cops ambushed by a gunman in LA.
The families of the two wounded deputies approved the release of the troubling image, which shows a bloodied female deputy standing after being shot through the jaw, FOXLA correspondent Bill Melugin posted on Twitter.
The male deputy is seen kneeling down behind a column holding out a blood-soaked hand — and a gun is seen on the ground in front of them.
“I’m told female deputy was shot through jaw, still radioed for help & applied tourniquet to male deputy’s wounds,” Melugin wrote. “Both stable now.”
The two cops — a 31-year-old mother and a 24-year-old man — were shot at close range around 7 p.m. Saturday in Compton. The two were critically injured when a lone gunman walked up and opened fire in a chilling caught-on-video ambush.
LA Sheriff Alex Villanueva said both deputies are out of surgery
