Newser — Arden Dier

The two Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies who were shot in the head in an ambush are now out of hospital. Officials announced the release of the female deputy, a 31-year-old mother, on Monday.

The 24-year-old male deputy was released on Wednesday. Both are to enter long-term care facilities, per KNBC. "They both have a long road to recovery and LASD appreciates your continued prayers and all the support,'' the sheriff's department says. Some $720,000 has been raised for their care. Meanwhile, the search continues for their assailant, who fired without provocation on a parked police SUV in Compton on Sept. 12, before fleeing on foot. A reward of at least $300,000 is offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction, per KTLA.
