Today in Phoneix, Police are on the hunt for the driver in an attempted ambush on an Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) Trooper.

The DPS troopers were in the area to provide support for other officers nearby who were investigating another matter nearby. The shooter, a 17yr old armed with an ‘assault rifle’, fired multiple rounds at the DPS troopers who returned fire. The shooter is in police custody but the driver fled the scene and officers are trying to track him down.

This is the second time law enforcement has been targeted in the past week after two L.A. deputies were ambushed and shot sitting in their squad car, as previously reported by 100%FedUp.

Only moments ago, the LA County Sheriffs Department tweeted a heartbreaking message:

Moments ago, 2 of our Sheriff Deputies were shot in Compton and were transported to a local hospital. They are both still fighting for their lives, so please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. We will update this thread with information as it becomes available.

They followed up with a video of the gunman “walking up on the deputies and opening fire without warning or provocation.”

According to the LA County Sheriff’s Office, one of the deputies who was shot was a male the other one was a female. Both sustained multiple gunshot wounds and are in critical condition. They are both currently undergoing surgery and the gunman is still at large.

Keith Hayes, a huge #BlacksForTrump supporter and veteran is asking for prayers for the male deputy who was shot tonight in Compton, sharing with his followers that the cop is his nephew. Hayes didn’t have any updates other than to say he is in serious condition.

Americans are praying for these brave law enforcement officers who were shot by a coward.

President Trump tweeted the video of the cowardly thug shooting the two innocent Sheriff deputies, saying, “Animals that must be hit hard!”

Juno Maxwell tweeted:

This is straight up evil!! I’m sorry to hear this is happening and as a black man, i’m ashamed that BLM lunatics keep fear mongering and fueling hatred against cops on my behalf. Its despicable!!
