The two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies who were shot in the head in an ambush in Compton Saturday are now in stable condition, authorities confirmed Sunday.
A senior official within in the department tells ABC News that one of the deputies, only identified as a 31-year-old mother of a 6-year-old boy, was shot in the jaw and arms but is critical but stable condition.
The other deputy, a 24-year-old man, was struck by gunfire in the forehead, an arm and a hand. He is described as alert. Neither of their names have been released to the public.
Meanwhile, the search continued Sunday for the gunman who shot at the deputies Saturday as they sat in a patrol vehicle outside the Metro Blue station at Willowbrook Avenue and Compton Boulevard.
On Sunday night reporter Bill Melugin from FOXLA posted this photo of the deputies after they were shot taking cover outside of the car.
The young mother was shot in the jaw and was able to call for help!

On Sunday police released the emergency call from this injured mother to police after she and her partner were shot in the head.
The deputy was shot in the jaw but still called in the emergency and then tended to her partner who was shot in the head.
Valor, Courage, Composure…
The WILL to WIN. This female deputy was able to put out the “Help Call” calmly & not panicked after a sick coward shot her & her partner in the face & head. I continue to pray for their recovery & the capture of the suspect.

Here is her young partner after being shot in the forehead.
These are the police who got ambushed and shot in LA while onlookers laughed. It’s graphic but look at these heroes. When the shooter shot them, he shot at all of us. These wounded officers represent the only thing that keeps us all safe and it’s also wounded… Law & order. pic.twitter.com/7qZSp1HYks
