Female LASD Deputy Hailed A Hero For Helping Save Her Partner’s Life

Fact checked

One of the two Los Angeles deputies who were shot in the face during an ambush on Saturday night, has been praised as a hero after helping save her partner’s life

Despite being seriously wounded herself, the female deputy managed to apply a tourniquet to her partner after she had called for back-up. 

The deputies, who both graduated from the police academy 14 months ago, each sustained multiple gunshot wounds after being shot at point blank range according to authorities.

Breitbart reports: The 31-year-old mother was one of two officers who were both shot in the face after an assailant approached their parked cruiser in Compton and opened fire on them. Both deputies remain in critical condition and are expected to survive the horrific attack.

Breitbart News learned the identities of both officers but refrained from publishing their names. On Tuesday, Britain’s Daily Mail published the name of Claudia Apolinar, reporting she is a former librarian who had graduated the L.A. Police Academy only one year ago.

Apolinar is the mother of a six-year-old child. She sustained bullet wounds to the jaw and arms, while the other officer — a 24-year-old male, also Latino — was hit in the forehead, an arm, and a hand.

On Saturday evening, the assailant approached the deputies’ cruiser, which was stopped outside the MLK, Jr. Transit Center in Compton. The unknown gunman fired multiple rounds into the vehicle before fleeing the scene on foot.

Breitbart News learned that Apolinar stumbled out of the vehicle after being shot and then helped her partner by applying a tourniquet to his wounds. She also put out a Help Call before administering the first aid.

Video has emerged that appears to show Apolinar moving her wounded partner to safety following the attack. The footage was posted to the official Twitter account of the LAPD Mission Station.

“She called for help, was able to rendered [sic] aid to her partner. She remained calm & stayed vigilant! Most of all SHE NEVER GAVE UP! She & her partner are heroes,” the LAPD Mission Station tweeted.

Multiple photos of the horrific incident have also emerged showing the wounded police deputies.


The Daily Mail reported that Apolinar was a rookie officer who worked as an aide in the L.A. County library system from 2011 and signed up to the Sheriff’s Department in 2017.

Both cops were taken to St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood following the incident. Late Saturday, Black Lives Matter protesters congregated outside the hospital, yelling insults at police officers and wishing death on the two wounded deputies.

A video obtained by Breitbart News shows BLM protestors callings cops “pigs” and “executioners” while shouting, “I hope they fucking die!”

There are currently no suspects in the case, though an arrest could come as early as this week, a source familiar with the investigation told Breitbart News. The Sheriff’s Department has put out a $100,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the case.

Officials are looking for a black male around the age of 28 to 30 years old.

Its a terrible truth that humans of every background have been killing one another since Cain and Abel .Its not going to stop and there will never be peace on earth while humans are here .They know it too ,and ANY ONE who talks about delivering you peace in exchange for you giving them power is a lying deceiving fraud .Partial peace ,temporary sort of peace yes but real peace ,no .And when they say the road to peace is via the warpath then they expose themselves as hypocrites .Nothing new They think the masses are morons ,and who can blame them ? Rhey dont know them,dont hear them talking to trusted mates ,they only hear the pc compliant public clap trap and b/ s cowards hide behind .So its deceit from every angle the way the one per cent framed society into their corner.Dunces caps on .
