The officers, a man and a woman, were both shot multiple times after a suspect walked up to their parked patrol car and fired at close range, according to the LA County Sheriffs Department, which tweeted “The gunman walked up on the deputies and opened fire without warning or provocation.”

In a Saturday night news conference, Sheriff Alex Villanueva said that the two had graduated from the sheriff’s training academy approximately 14 months ago. The female officer, 31, is the mother of a six-year-old boy, while the other officer is 24-years-old. At least one of them was able to radio for help, after which they were taken to nearby St. Francis Medical Center where they underwent surgery, according to NBC News.

Deputy Morgan Arteaga said the attack was reported about 7 p.m. at a train station in the city of Compton. The sheriff’s department has a unit that patrols Los Angeles Metro trains; it’s also contracted to police that city.

“They are still alive,” Arteaga said.

According to the report, the FBI offered to assist the sheriff’s department in the manhunt for the suspect.
