What happened: The deputies suffered head wounds in the Sept. 12 ambush and have since been released from the hospital and are recovering. Sheriff Alex Villanueva said, however, that they face further reconstructive surgeries and that their recoveries will be a long process.
Surveillance video showed a person walking toward the patrol car, parked at a Metro rail station, and firing a handgun through the passenger-side window. The deputies radioed for help despite their wounds.
What we know: California investigators have arrested and charged Deonte Lee Murray in connection with the shooting of two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies earlier this month as they sat in their squad car, authorities said Wednesday. Murray, a resident of the city of Compton, where the shooting happened, was arrested two weeks ago in connection with a separate carjacking and he was expected to be arraigned later Wednesday on charges in both cases. Prosecutors planned to request for bail of $6.15 million.
