LOS ANGELES AP — A California sheriff's deputy was shot in the head but survived an "ambush" by a gunman intent on harming or killing police and authorities said Wednesday they were investigating whether there was a connection to two recent deadly attacks on officers. After wounding the San Luis Obispo County deputy in the small city of Paso Robles, police believe the shooter killed a transient and then eluded an intense manhunt. Police sought the public's help and released photos from surveillance video showing the suspect — a young dark-haired, bearded man.
The shooter opened fire around a. Officers were inside at the time and windows and a door were shot out but no one was injured. The deputy was struck while responding and his partner dragged him to safety and returned fire, Parkinson said.
The wounded deputy was in serious but stable condition with a bullet lodged in his head, he said.
While searching for the suspect investigators found the body of a man near railroad tracks several blocks away. The year-old, unidentified transient was shot once at close range in the back of the head, police said. Paso Robles is an unlikely spot for such violence. The bustling community miles kilometers northwest of Los Angeles is a tourist destination and centerpiece of the wine industry on California's Central Coast.
The violence came just five days after another unlikely location, the community of Ben Lomond in Santa Cruz County farther north on the California coast, was the scene of an ambush on police. Santa Cruz sheriff's Sgt. Damon Gutzwiller, 38, was killed and another deputy injured Saturday in an attack allegedly carried out by an Air Force sergeant armed with homemade bombs, an AR rifle and other weapons. The FBI is investigating whether Carrillo, 32, has links to the killing of a federal security officer who was shot outside the U.
The FBI also is assisting the San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles departments with their investigation of the shooting that left the two-year deputy in serious condition. He said there's no clear link between the latest shooting and the other two but that over time the investigation could lead there. The deputy, who was not identified, and his partner heard gunfire as they approached the station and got out of the car to search but didn't see the suspect "until they started taking fire," Parkinson said.
The deputy's partner managed to get him to safety behind a patrol car. The wounded deputy was conscious and managed to radio that he'd been shot. Parkinson said there was no local event or imminent arrest that might have prompted the violence.
He also said investigators didn't know if the attack was connected to anger swelling nationwide at police over the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis officers. He called Floyd's death unjust and horrific.
