‘Shot in the head’: Dipton’s struggle to survive after the Compton attack


Two Los Angeles County Sheriffs depots were out of surgery and recovered after being shot in Compton on Saturday evening in what authorities described as a “ambush” captured on surveillance video.

The video released by the Sheriff Department shows a man walking toward the depot’s steep patrol car, ejecting a gun and firing multiple times in the area of ​​the front seat from the passenger’s side. The attacker was then seen running away from the scene. On Sunday, authorities sought the public’s help to locate the person who opened the fire.
