President Trump Calls Deputies To Wish Them A Speedy Recovery After Compton Shooting

The two LA County Sheriff’s deputies recovering from gunshot wounds after an attack in Compton while they sat in their patrol vehicle received wishes for a speedy recovery from President Donald Trump this week.

One of the deputies responded to the phone call from the ICU. Because of her injuries, she wrote down what she wanted to say so it could be relayed to the president, the LASD Transit Services Bureau said in a Facebook post. 

The other injured deputy is at home.

“A week ago today, a callous and heartless criminal attempted to murder two of the heroes that work hard everyday to keep you safe when ride @metrolosangeles,” the post begins. “This week #potus45 @realdonaldtrump called both of our deputies to check on their spirits, wish them a speedy recovery and remind them that the #american people are behind them and that the coward that harmed them will be brought to #justice!!”

The search for whoever shot the deputies at point-blank range on Sept. 12 continues. Sources tell NBC LA a man taken into custody after a carjacking in Lynwood is directly linked to the investigation.
