Manhunt For Sniper Who Shot Deputy in Los Angeles

Police are expanding a manhunt after a deputy was shot by an apparent sniper right outside a sheriff’s department in Los Angeles.

The deputy was hit in the chest on Wednesday.

His bullet proof vest deflected the bullet into his shoulder, likely saving his life.

The department evacuated the building the suspected is believed to have shot from, immediately sweeping the apartment complex with tactical teams.

But with little information about the suspect, the search has been slow and difficult.

Now the department is expanding its investigation and asking for help from the public.

The officer that was shot is expected to make a full recovery.
