On September 12, two LA County Sheriff’s deputies were shot multiple times in the head by an unknown gunman. The officers remain in critical condition. The criminal has not been identified and the search is on to find him. The LASD put up $100,000 in reward money for information that leads to the gunman’s arrest and conviction. Two private donors added an additional $75,000
Recently, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva went on the radio to challenge LeBron James to match the $175,000 raised. He did not mention why he was calling on a private citizen, who has no connection to the situation, to pledge money.
