On Saturday, two Los Angeles police officers were ambushed and shot as they sat in their police car. Both are still alive but in critical condition in an LA hospital.
The Blaze explains what happened next.
After two Los Angeles Sheriff’s deputies sustained multiple gunshot wounds upon being ambushed while sitting in their patrol vehicle on Saturday, alleged Black Lives Matters protesters stormed the hospital where the officers were transported to for emergency surgery.
According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office, protesters attempted to block the entrance and exit of the hospital. Protesters also shouted that they hoped the injured officers died.
“To the protesters blocking the entrance & exit of the HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM yelling ‘We hope they die’ referring to 2 LA Sheriff’s ambushed today in #Compton: DO NOT BLOCK EMERGENCY ENTRIES & EXITS TO THE HOSPITAL. People’s lives are at stake when ambulances can’t get through,” the agency said.
