Man Charged in LA Deputy Sheriff Attack

Looks like they got him.

LA County Sheriff investigators had to make sure they had all the pieces and enough evidence to charge this piece of crap.

36-year old Deonte Lee Murray was charged with attempted murder after allegedly ambushing two LA County Sheriff Deputies in Compton.

This from LA County District Attorney Jackie Lacey's office:

On September 12, the defendant allegedly walked up to a car occupied by two sheriff’s deputies outside a Metro station and opened fire. He then fled the scene.
Both deputies were seriously injured and taken to a nearby hospital.
Prosecutors are recommending bail be set at $6.15 million. If convicted as charged, the defendant faces a possible maximum life sentence in state prison.
Murray was charged on September 17 with one felony count each of carjacking, second-degree robbery and assault with a semiautomatic firearm-personal use of a firearm.
On September 1, the defendant allegedly confronted a man in Compton, shot him in his leg and then stole the victim’s vehicle.
Murray was found and arrested on September 15, three days after he allegedly shot at the deputies.
He faces an additional count each of attempted murder in connection with the carjacking and possession of a firearm by a felon.
He also faces allegations of association with a criminal street gang, discharging a rifle inflicting great bodily injury and personal use of a rifle in the carjacking incident.
