Two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were shot in an apparent ambush in Compton Saturday evening. The two deputies suffered multiple gunshot wounds in an unprovoked attack on the officers.
The shooter came up from behind on the passenger side and opened fire through the passenger window shooting the two officers. The 31-year-old female deputy and 24-year-old male deputy both underwent surgery Saturday evening and are now out of surgery and expected to survive.
President Donald Trump tweeted about the matter, referring to the officers saying, "If they die, fast trial death penalty for the killer. Only way to stop this!”
We stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our brothers and sisters of the @LASDHQ. Our prayers are with the two deputies who are fighting for their lives after being shot multiple times as they sat in their radio car — attacked by a cowardly, violent criminal. https://t.co/uWFXzGA84b

One of the worst parts is instead of leaving the officers alone after they had been shot these animals went to the hospital where the officers were being treated and started protesting there. Here is some footage of that too.

According to DailyMail
Protesters have blocked the entrance to the hospital where the two Los Angeles sheriff's deputies ambushed in a shooting Saturday are fighting for their lives, chanting: 'We hope they f***ing die.'
The officers, one the 31-year-old mother of a six-year-old boy, were shot at the Metro Blue Line station at Willowbrook Avenue and Oak Street in Compton by a male suspect who then fled the scene.
Donald Trump on Sunday said the man who opened fire should face a 'fast trial death penalty' if the deputies die. He earlier called the shooter an 'animal' who needed to be 'hit hard' as the FBI was called in to help investigate.
The president tweeted: 'If they die, fast trial death penalty for the killer. Only way to stop this!' He had rewarded his son Donald Jr. who shared the footage, writing: 'Please pray for these two Sheriff Deputies. Their lives matter!!! #BlueLivesMatter.'
Joe Biden said: 'This cold-blooded shooting is unconscionable and the perpetrator must be brought to justice. Violence of any kind is wrong; those who commit it should be caught and punished.
