Two police officers with the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department were shot late Saturday in Compton, California. Both officers remain in critical condition.

According to the LASD official account on Twitter, the deputies—a male and a female—were ambushed as they sat in their patrol vehicle. They were with the LASD Transit Security Bureau.

Police say both officers sustained multiple gunshot wounds and are in critical condition and are currently undergoing surgery. The shooter was identified by the male officer, who was conscious following the attack, as a "dark skinned male."

Speaking to the press at 10pm Saturday, Sheriff Alex Villaneuva described the female officer as a 31-year-old mother of a six-year-old son. The male deputy is 24.

The sheriff described the shooting as part of the surging anti-police trend against the police nationwide, where felons are now opening fire on police officers unprovoked.

"It pi**es me off," he said. "It dismays me."

The woman who Sheriffs say refused to follow orders & interfered with an arrest at the BLM protest at the hospital where two deputies are in critical condition is @josie_huang. twitter.com/lasdhq/status/…
 
 
An reporter for NPR, which receives funding from taxpayers, hampering law enforcement in its efforts to protect critically wounded officers. In an utterly grotesque way it merely makes the metaphorical into the literal.
