  • LA Deputy killed this morning.

    I just got a text from some people at LA county that I use to work with and apparently an off duty dep was shot and killed this morning between 5 and 6 am out side of his house. He worked at MCJ. I called someone who works there and he confirmed it. They don't know if it was a random drive by or he was a target....

    The Los Angeles County deputy died at the scene of the early morning shooting in an area troubled by gang feuds, police say. Sheriff Baca and LAPD Chief Bratton go to the location of the killing.

    An off-duty Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy who worked in the Men's Central Jail was shot and killed near his residence in a drive-by shooting early this morning in Cypress Park, Los Angeles police said.

    The shooting occurred about 5:40 a.m. on Aragon Avenue between Maceo Street and Thorpe Avenue. The deputy died at the scene, said Los Angeles Police Sgt. Chris Gomez.

    Police said a white, four-door vehicle approached the deputy -- a 2 1/2 -year veteran whose name has not yet been released. Numerous gunshots were fired from the vehicle, striking the deputy. His body was found next to his car.

    The suspect vehicle was seen or heard leaving the area, police officers said.

    "Today is a very difficult day," said Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca, who was on the scene along with LAPD Chief William J. Bratton. "There are people within our Sheriff's Department that are grieving, as am I."

    The deputy lived or had relatives in the area, Baca said. Police officers wouldn't say whether he was in uniform, or how many shots were fired. Rookie deputies typically work in county jails for their first assignments.

    The LAPD is expected to release the deputy's name later today.

    "We have no information about the suspect," said LAPD Deputy Chief Sergio Diaz. "The best detectives in our Police Department are handling this case."

    A neighbor, Gloria Ruiz, said that her son and the deputy grew up together and had both served in Iraq. She said he had a strict upbringing and his mother "would gleam whenever he had good grades."

    Bratton described the area as a historically troubled one because of a feud between the gangs in the Cypress Park and Glassell Park areas, but said that it had been quiet in recent months after an LAPD raid earlier this year.

    In February, police officers found themselves in a gun battle after they pulled over the vehicle of a suspect in a fatal drive-by shooting and one of the car's occupants began firing an AK-47. None of the officers were injured, but one gunman was killed and another wounded.

    Thousands were forced to stay in their homes during the shootout, and several schools were locked down.

    Thoughts and Prayers to you and your family...

    May your soul rest in peace my brother..

                            R.I.P. Brother, There so far are not many leads. The case is being worked by LAPD RHD detectives as well as LASD Homicide. LAPD has the street side, LASD is working on any connections to the jails. Glendale, Burbank and Pasadena are shaking down their gangsters in efforts to help.

                            The Deputy grew up in that neigborhood, a lot of the gangsters knew who he was and where he worked but it is unclear if that contributed in the shooting.

                            We will hunt the guys to the end of the earth and back for what they have done.
