“A male proxy and a female proxy were ambushed while they were in their patrol car,” read the tweet. “Both suffered multiple gunshot wounds and are in critical condition. Both are currently undergoing surgery. The suspect is still at large.”
The two officers were rushed to a local hospital and “are still fighting for their lives,” says LASD.
“Every day law enforcement officers put themselves at risk to protect our community,” was his tweet. “I hope the perpetrator of this cowardly attack can be brought to justice quickly.”
