(PIX11/CNN) – Police in Florida and Los Angeles were targeted over the weekend — days after the funeral for an NYPD officer who was slain execution-style with his partner in Brooklyn.
Two LAPD officers were responding to a call in a South Los Angeles neighborhood when at least one person opened fire in the direction of the patrol car, according LAPD Capt. Lillian Carranza.
“This was a completely unprovoked attack,” Carranza said. Bullets missed both officers, who returned fire, and no one was injured in the attack.
Police took one person into custody and recovered a rifle and one other weapon at the scene. A second suspect is still at large despite a manhunt involving roughly 100 officers.
In Tampa Bay, there is a $3,000 reward for information leading to the gunman or gunmen who shot at two Pasco County Sheriff’s Office deputies while they sat in their patrol car Sunday morning.
“Both deputies reported hearing the whizzing sound of each projectile as they flew by,” the sheriff’s office said. “Deputies did not see the suspect or the vehicle from which the shots were fired.”
Police are also looking for the person who spray-painted “Shoot MP Cop” in Meadow Pointe, a subdivision just north of Tampa.
The latest shots fired at police come after New York police Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were gunned down in their patrol car on December 20.
The gunman, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, then shot himself at a subway station. Earlier, he had posted angry messages on social media against police and government, citing the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, two black men killed by police.
On Saturday, more than 25,000 police officers from across the country and even Canada attended Ramos’ funeral.
Liu’s funeral will be January 4.
