Gunman Ambushes Officer Chasing Another Suspect, Shoots Him At Point Blank Range

An LAPD officer was ambushed during a pursuit.

Los Angeles, CA - Bodycam and surveillance footage captured the moment that a gunman ambushed a Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officer who was pursuing another suspect (video below).

The shooting occurred on April 20 at 9:20 p.m., according to ABC News.

Two LAPD Gang Enforcement Division officers attempted to make a traffic stop on a vehicle which rolled through a stop sign.

The vehicle took off and led the officers on a short pursuit before the driver jumped out of the car with a gun and ran into the Pueblo Del Rio public housing project.

As the officers split up to chase the driver, another gunman charged Officer Enrique Trujillo and shot him at point blank range.

The officer immediately returned fire ans shot the gunman until he collapsed in a pool of blood.

Officer Trujillo was shot in the leg during the gunfight and was rushed to the hospital in a patrol car. He survived his wounds and is now recovering at home.

The gunman, later identified as 39-year-old Curley Lee Duff, was transported to the hospital where he also survived his injuries.

Duff has an extensive criminal history and is being charged with attempted murder of a police officer. He is being held on $2.095 million bail, according to KTLA.

LAPD did not state if the driver who initiated the pursuit was ever captured or identified.

What is shown in the extended video is the mob that gathers and threatens the officers.

Another criminal with a gun. Wow! These pesky criminal apparently don’t know they are not allowed to have firearms. Maybe the Left will come up with public service announcement to convince them of that. NOT, ... for they think it a better idea to disarm law-abiding citizens. A

Fuck these cowards and the POS mayor Governor, city council, congressman, senators, and media for turning California into the toilet bowl of America. The only way to fix this unfortunately would require every police officer in California to go on strike for a night or two that's the only way to get people's attention to how officers are being treated. Pay cuts, pention reduction, overwhelming homeless, drug, illegal immigrant, and crime has cause a mass Exodus of officers which is hurting public safty. It's sad that the California will show more empathy to that pathetic subhuman and won't put him on death row. He'll get to live in prison at tax payers expense for the rest of his wasted life.

This was not an ambush -- the shooter was out in the open. It does look like he knew, or should have known, that he was firing at a police man, in which case he needs to be severely punished.

Yawn. Another highly misleading headline to get there racist base riled up. This is aold as video form over a mo th ago and the cop wa son,y grazed/shot and Th else an released from the hospital within a few hours🙄! I guess the white svGe who murdered the a,Abrams dip and shit 3 other officers wouldn’t fit the agenda. Or the fact according to AP white men account for 97 percnent of trooper, fireman and cop murders so fsr in 2019. Why is the eldelry Asian man who ambushed the two cops in California Who is now on trial getting zero coverage?! Hmmmm..must not fit the agenda.
