Police released this surveillance video of the suspect

The incident occurred on Monday evening around 5:45 p.m.. The suspect walked up to the off-duty officer and shot him in the back of the head, then fled the scene.

ABC7 reported:

“Nothing overtly that would indicate he was a law enforcement officer. He was off duty…The shooting is on video. There doesn’t appear to be an overt motive. There is no audio to the video, so we don’t know if there were words exchanged.” Capt. Kent Wegener, LA County Homicide

The suspect is described as a white male 20 – 30 years old, between 5’9″ and 5′ 11″. Police believe he changed his clothes at a nearby residence shortly after the shooting. He was seen driving a white Kia Sportage 4-door SUV with paper license plates.

The suspect is still at large. Because this does not appear to be a random shooting, did the gunman know who the LA county deputy was since he’d been on the force for 13 years?

An intense manhunt was initiated for the shooter. The deputy is in the USC medical center fighting for his life. His name has not been released.

Fox Noted:

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may call LA Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
