Four days after getting engaged, a Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy was slain when he was attacked and shot in the head while in his patrol car on Saturday, according to police.
According to Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna, Deputy Ryan Clinkunbroomer, 30, was found unconscious outside the Palmdale sheriff’s station around 6 o’clock on Saturday.
Clinkunbroomer was taken by emergency vehicle about 10 miles away to Antelope Valley Medical Center in Lancaster, where his status was listed as critical until he passed away from his wounds.
“I’m assuming at this point because he was in uniform. That, to me, is sickening,” Luna said.
The gunman remains at large as of Sunday morning.
“We’re gonna catch the person who did this,” Luna said. “Every resource that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has to bear is going after you.”
