#HappeningNow LA Sheriff's deputies stand watch at St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, where two deputies are fighting for their lives after they were shot at the Metro Blue Line station in Compton @DailyBreezeNews @presstelegram @ladailynews Image
Sheriff Alex Villanueva, Homicide Capt. Kent Wegener, and CA Assembly members Mike Gipson, district 64 and Reggie Jones-Sawyer Sr. District 59 are scheduled to speak at a press conference starting now
"I just swore them in 14 months ago," Sheriff Alex Villanueva said of the two deputies currently recovering from surgery. One is a mother if a 6-year-old. The other is 24 years old. Their loveed ones are here with them. @ladailynews @presstelegram @DailyBreezeNews
Capt. Kent Wegener: The suspect walked as if he was going to pass the deputies, then turned and fired, strike them multiple times. About 14 detectives were with investigators currently canvassing the crime scene.
Assembly member Jones-Sawyer: "This was an unprovoked, cowardly act. The individual will be caught and justice will prevail. Out society must not tolerate such acts of violence."
Some sort of commotion after the press conference. I'm told protesters have arrived at the hospital. @ladailynews @presstelegram @DailyBreezeNews

Deputies at scene said a crowd has dispersed. Still heavy police presence in the area though. Helicopter is circling overhead. A portion of Martin Luther King Boulevard is still blocked off. Image
