Thugs Attempt Assassination of Two LAPD Officers


December 29, 2014 12:05pm PST

An attempted assassination of two LAPD officers is being compared to the attack on NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu last week. Two suspects opened fire on a police vehicle in a South Los Angeles neighborhood on Sunday night.

The officers were on patrol at about 9:30 p.m., when their squad car was fired at with a rifle. They returned fire, but the suspects fled. The department declared a citywide tactical alert, sending every available officer to the area of 62nd and Hoover streets, LAPD officials said.

A weapon was recovered from the scene of the shooting and one suspect has been taken into custody, however, it is unclear at this time if he was the man who fired the rifle at law enforcement.

LAPD Deputy Chief Bob Green told NBC Los Angeles it is a “possibility” that the attack was in retaliation for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, like the assassinations of NYPD officers Ramos and Liu. “Whether or not this is related to that, too early to tell,” said Green.
