LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) - A female Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy who was one of two deputies shot in a Compton ambush earlier this month was released from the hospital Monday.
The 31-year-old female deputy was in the ICU prior to her release. Her 24-year-old partner - who was released last Wednesday - is now in a long-term care facility as he continues to recover.
"Great News... both of our Deputies from the #ComptonAmbush have been discharged from the hospital and are resting. They both have a long road to recovery and #LASD appreciates your continued prayers and all the support. #LASDStrong'' a tweet from the sheriff's department said.
Officials also said President Trump called both of those deputies to wish them a speedy recovery.
A $700,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspected shooter in the Sept. 12 attack.
