Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Markus "Mookie" Betts has spoken out condemning the weekend ambush of two LA County Sheriff's deputies, saying his prayers are with the officers and calling for justice in the shooting.
"I am angered and disappointed by the ambush of the two LA deputies in Compton," one-time MVP Betts tweeted Wednesday. "My prayers are with both deputies. #JusticeForAll"
Authorities are still searching for the gunman who was caught on surveillance video opening fire on the two deputies while they sat in their patrol cars on Saturday. According to Fox News:
The ambushed officers were both hospitalized in critical condition due to the injuries they sustained in the shooting. LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva announced Wednesday that one of the deputies was released on Wednesday, but still "has a long road ahead for recovery."
The deputy who remains hospitalized has been identified as Claudia Apolinar, a former librarian and the mother of a 6-year-old boy. She has been hailed a hero for applying a tourniquet to her partner to save his life in the moments following the attack, despite the fact that she herself had just been shot in the face and several times in torso.
