I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

Sheriff’s Deputy in Critical Condition After Alhambra Shooting

Location

Alhambra , CA

A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy was in critical condition Tuesday morning after being shot in the head by an unknown assailant inside a Jack in the Box restaurant located in the 2500 block of West Valley Boulevard in Alhambra.

The incident happened around 5:45 p.m. Monday night as the deputy, in plain clothes and reportedly not carrying a firearm or wearing anything that would indicate his position as a law enforcement officer, was waiting for his food after ordering. Alhambra Police were the first responders to the incident which is now being investigated by L.A. County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau.

The deputy, a 13-year veteran of the sheriff’s department, was transported to L.A. County-USC Medical Center. Due to the circumstances of the attack—investigators are considering the possibility that the deputy may have been targeted—his name and any information on his current assignment are not being released.

The suspect fled in a white, four-door, KIA Sorrento SUV with paper plates. He is described as a white or Latino male between 20-30 years old, 5’9″-5’11” in height. He apparently changed clothing in the area after the attack and drove away from the neighborhood wearing black jeans and a black t-shirt. The alleged assailant was wearing a fedora and sunglasses when he shot the deputy in the head.

Sherriff’s Homicide is urging anyone with information to contact the department at 323 890-5500. Those wishing to remain anonymous may contact the department by dialing 800-222-8477.
