One of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) deputies attacked Saturday evening was shot in the head and the other was shot in the face, the Los Angeles Times has confirmed.
As Breitbart News reported, two deputies were shot as they sat in their patrol car in Compton “without warning or provocation” in an attack captured on video:
LASD deputies have been targeted by Black Lives Matter protests, as well as self-described anarchists and Antifa supporters, since the shooting death of a black man, Dijon Kizzee, earlier this month.
Kizzee allegedly fought with police who tried to pull him over for a bicycle infraction. He allegedly had a gun at the time of the confrontation.
Nightly protests, many of them violent, have taken place outside the LASD facility in South Los Angeles.
Officials said that the two officers were conducting a routine patrol outside an L.A. Metro train
