Arrest of the Compton Shooter

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Statement by Assemblyman and Chair of the Public Safety Committee, Reggie Jones-Sawyer

“The apprehension of the alleged shooter and gang member, who nearly took the lives of two Sheriff Deputies, gives our community a sigh of relief knowing another criminal element and threat to the safety of our families and law enforcement is removed from our streets. The immediate outpouring of support for the two Deputies is a sign that we will not, and must not, tolerate violence of any kind against another human being. We must rise above political differences and remain above the fray and call out abuses of the law and criminality of every sort. I continue to pray for and wish the two deputy’s a speedy and full recovery.”
