Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva on Monday warned deputies to watch out for more possible attacks after a gunman ambushed two officers in Compton over the weekend.
ABC News reports:
The search for the gunman went into its third day Monday and Villanueva told ABC News that he has sheriff’s deputies on heightened alert for a repeat attack.
“This is going to cause us to be a lot more concerned about when we approach vehicles when we’re out there on the streets,” Villanueva said. “We have everybody paired up in two-man vehicles now. So, we’re going to have to be watching out for each other’s back out there on the streets.”
Two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office deputies were critically wounded after they were shot while inside of their vehicle at around 7:00 P.M. Saturday.
Update: The gunman walked up on the deputies and opened fire
