The coward (we won't publish his name) who ambushed two courageous Los Angeles Sheriff's Deputies on September 12th is behind bars. The 36-year-old man is charged with attempted murder, along with other charges, and faces a potential sentence of life behind bars.
The defendant has a long criminal history including convictions for sales and possession of narcotics, firearm possession, receiving stolen property, burglary and terrorist threats. He is also known to associate with gangs.
According to the Associated Press, "The sheriff’s department arrested [the defendant] two weeks ago in connection with a separate carjacking. But officials at the time said it was not related to the ambush case." Still, he had "fled in a black Mercedes Benz sedan. Investigators discovered that type of vehicle had been stolen Sept. 1 in a carjacking where the driver was shot. Photographs of the carjacking suspect seemed to match images from the ambush, Wegener said, strengthening a connection between the two cases."
Our original report about this horrific ambush follows this update and contains the videos, audio records and still photos that document the tremendous courage the deputies exhibited after both were shot repeatedly while sitting in their patrol car.
ORIGINAL REPORT 9/16/20
In the following audio and video clips, plus still photos from the video, that Red Alert News has compiled, you can witness first-hand the heroic actions the two Los Angeles Sheriff's Deputies who were ambushed and shot multiple times as they sat in their marked patrol vehicle took as they worked to save their lives and provide information on the shooter to their fellow law enforcement professionals.
The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department Dispatch audio will give you chills as you hear Deputy Claudia Apolinar struggle with a broken jaw - shattered by a bullet - to radio for assistance. Once the deputies knew help was on the way, they took a defensive position near a concrete pillar while Deputy Apolinar applied a tourniquet to her partner's arm to keep him from bleeding to death before help arrived.

Look at this. Stare at this. Don’t ever forget this. This is the result of a rotting culture where deranged lunatics tell our kids that the cops are the bad guys, and that the bad guys are the good guys. Something’s gotta give. pic.twitter.com/49yCk1Keie— Dan Bongino (@dbongino) September 15, 2020
