The two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies shot Saturday night are out of surgery and are expected to survive.
The Los Angeles Times reports that both deputies are “recovering,” following surgery after the ambush attack.
L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva described the wounded deputies as a “31-year-old mother of a 6-year-old boy and… a 24-year-old man.” He said the fact that both are expected to survive is a “double miracle.”
The L.A. County Sheriff’s Headquarters tweeted video of the attack:

Update: The gunman walked up on the deputies and opened fire without warning or provocation.

The L.A. County Sheriff’s Headquarters has subsequently tweeted a special bulletin announcing a $100,000 reward for information “lead to the arrest and conviction” of the attacker:
