The day after a Downey, CA, police officer was fatally shot in the station’s parking lot in what appears to be a targeted attack, multiple people were detained and the search for others continued in Montebello on Thursday, officials said.
Wednesday night at around 11 p.m. Officer Ricardo "Ricky" Galvez pulled in to the station’s parking lot in his personal vehicle when two people ran up and opened fire, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Lt. John Carina said.
“It appears like he was targeted, it doesn’t look random," Carina told KTLA TV.
A patrol officer heard the gunfire and pursued the suspected gunmen, believed to be two men, Carina said.
