Video Shows Wounded Deputy Struggle To Aid Partner After Compton Shooting


As the hunt continues for the gunman who ambushed two LASD deputies in Compton, new video shows one deputy helping her partner even as she was bleeding from her own wounds.

The female deputy can be seen on surveillance video struggling to place a tourniquet on her partner even as she herself is bleeding from gunshot wounds.

"She helped the other wounded deputy, got on the radio, provided medical care, got him to a place of safety 'cause they didn't know if there was another attack coming their way," Sheriff Alex Villanueva said.

Audio captures a frantic call for help from one of the deputies shortly after the shooting. "I've been shot. Send help," one of the deputies is heard saying in the radio call.

Both deputies incurred multiple gunshot wounds and are recovering from surgery in stable condition.
