Photos show suspect in shooting of off-duty LA deputy
ALHAMBRA, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is asking for public help in identifying a suspect in the shooting of an off-duty deputy who was critically wounded.
The department has released photos from surveillance video showing the young man as he was dressed at the time of the shooting Monday in suburban Alhambra and later after he changed his clothes in a nearby neighborhood.
Investigators say the deputy was waiting for a food order at a Jack in the Box counter when the man walked up and shot him in the head with a handgun, then drove away in a Kia Sorento SUV with paper plates.
The deputy was in civilian clothes and had nothing to outwardly indicate he was a law enforcement officer.
His name has not been released.
