Two deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) were shot in the city of Compton late on Saturday night, the L.A. county sheriff’s department tweeted

“One male deputy and one female deputy were ambushed as they sat in their patrol vehicle,” the tweet read.

“Both sustained multiple gunshot wounds and are in critical condition.” They are currently being treated.

An individual was seen approaching the deputies’ car, firing shots into the car and running away, according to a video tweeted bit.ly/32nTgmY by the LASD.
