Los Angles Deputy Sheriff attack
Murray was actually arrested for a separate case of carjacking. He was arrested a couple of weeks back. On September 12, allegedly Murray attacked the deputies when they were in the squad car. They received severe head injuries. The deputies are still recovering but have been released from the hospital.
The incident took place outside the Compton metro station. The surveillance video showed that a man approached on foot and fire with a handgun through the passenger window.
The identities of the 31-year-old woman and 24-year-old woman were not revealed. They graduated from Sheriff’s office 14 months ago.
The suspect is expected to be arraigned today.
It is not immediately clear how the police cracked the case. It needs to be seen whether the suspect confessed to the attack. This was a case of deteriorating law and order situation. Criminal cases have increased since the BLM protests started in the US.
