Rookie L.A. Officer Recovering After Ambush Shooting

January 02, 2018  | 

A Los Angeles police officer has been shot in an ambush attack but she's expected to recover, reports the Associated Press.

The Los Angeles Police Department says the officer, a recent graduate of the police academy, was shot while patrolling with her training officer shortly before 10 p.m. Friday in the Rampart area.

Police tell KCBS-TV that they had stopped someone for what's termed a “minor infraction” when shots rang out from a distance.

Police Chief Charlie Beck on Saturday called it “an unprovoked and cowardly attack.”

The officer was shot in the thigh and was in stable condition at a hospital.

What it was Chief Beck is someone lying in wait for just the right moment to do some harm. I bet she thought good lord what have I gotten myself into but being LA that sort of thing should be expected at any given time day or night. Wishes for a speedy and complete recovery to the officer.
