A Los Angeles County sheriff’s sergeant was responding to a home invasion robbery call when he was shot in the face by a BLM thug.
The officer was rushed to a nearby hospital in a sheriff’s cruiser but did not survive his injury.
Sergeant Steve Owen, a 29-year veteran of the force, was shot when he encountered the suspect at the scene of the crime in Lancaster, CA.
Gunshots were reported to police at around 12:30 p.m. A massive manhunt for the shooter ensued.
As deputies were closing in, the suspect stole a sheriff’s vehicle and rammed it into a police cruiser. The deputies opened fire on the subject hitting him at least once, but he still escaped.
Around 2 p.m., the gunman, who is on active parole, entered a home and took two hostages.
Sheriff’s deputies entered the house and the thug ran out to the backyard, attempting to scale a fence. He was then cornered by officers and surrendered.
Video of the moment the thug surrendered was captured on video by CBS Los Angeles.
Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris told reporters that “We forget how dangerous this job is. Steve was so brave. The Antelope Valley has lost a true hero today.”
Parris said that over 100 deputies rushed to the hospital where Sergeant Owen was taken when they heard the news that he had been shot.
Sergeant Owen received the department’s Medal of Valor in 2014, the highest honor bestowed on officers.
Owen’s wife works with the department’s Arson Explosive Unit.
This is Obama’s America. A Thug America. Those who hate this country, and who have no respect for life are running rampant in the streets, killing police and civilians at will. If you want it to end, Hillary isn’t the answer. She’s Obama’s clone. Trump is the only one who can end the rampant crime & killing of police.
May Sergeant Owen RIP, and may his family be comforted in this time of darkness.
