"Some believe this ambush was retaliation"

Two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies – one the 31-year-old mother of a six-year-old boy, the other a 24-year-old man – were ambushed by an unknown man at 7pm on Saturday night while they sat in their patrol car at the Metro Blue Line station at Willowbrook Avenue and Oak Street.

Fox News reporter William la Jeunesse said Monday: ‘Los Angeles police will not say this publicly – but some believe this ambush was retaliation for some recent police shootings of black suspects in LA.’

On August 31 black man Dijon Kizzee was shot and killed by Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies after he was stopped for a traffic violation while riding a bike. At the beginning of this month the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors also voted to ask the coroner to conduct an inquest into the fatal deputy shooting of 18-year-old Andres Guardado on June 18.
