LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – An ex-convict plead not guilty Wednesday to attempted murder and other charges in connection with the earlier this month in Compton.
Deonte Lee Murray, 36, pleaded not guilty to two counts each of
attempted murder of a peace officer and possession of a firearm by a felon in connection with the Sept. 12 attack on the deputies, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
He was previously charged Sept. 17 with one felony count each of
carjacking, second-degree robbery and assault with a semi-automatic firearm involving a Sept. 1 carjacking in Compton, in which he allegedly shot a man in the leg with a high-powered rifle and stole his black Mercedes-Benz. He pleaded not guilty to those charges and
has remained behind bars since his Sept. 15 arrest.
Two additional charges stemming from the earlier crime — attempted
murder and possession of a firearm by a felon — have since been added, prosecutors said.
Murray’s bail was increased from just over $1 million to $6.15 million as a result of the new charges.
He is due back in court Nov. 17.
Sheriff Alex Villanueva and L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey announced the arrest of Murray at a news conference Wednesday morning at LASD headquarters in downtown L.A.
Murray was arrested on Sept. 15, three days after the deputies were shot, but in connection with an unrelated carjacking and shooting which had occurred in Compton on Sept. 1, Lacey said. Forensic evidence later linked him to the shooting of the two deputies.
A ghost gun used in the shooting of the deputies was recovered by investigators, sheriff’s Capt. Kent Wegener told reporters.
Furthermore, Murray fled the scene of the deputies’ shooting in a black Mercedes Benz sedan, the same vehicle which Murray had carjacked on Sept. 1, Wegener revealed.

Lancaster, PA-Riots erupted overnight in Lancaster after police fatally shoot knife-wielding man.
Rioters gathered outside of the police station, damaged police vehicle and threw bricks and other objects at officers. Rioters roamed the city breaking windows, stealing merchandise, and setting fires. Officers used tear gas and rubber bullets to break up the crowd.
“A police-involved shooting has significant impact on a community, as we are seeing with the large number of individuals gathering in the streets,” District Attorney Heather Adams said Sunday night. “We ask that acts of protest remain peaceful as violence and destruction of property will become headlines and serve no purpose for the safety and wellbeing of our citizens and neighborhoods.”
“We ask that acts of protest remain peaceful as violence and destruction of property will become headlines and serve no purpose for the safety and wellbeing of our citizens and neighborhoods.”
The officer responded to a call for a domestic disturbance where a man, later identified as, 27-year-old Ricardo Munoz, was becoming aggressive with his mother and attempted to break into her house.
Bodycam footage released by the department shows the officer walking up to the residence and woman at the door while Munoz was yelling inside. The video then shows Munoz running out of the house holding a knife, and running towards the officer.
The officer shoots Munoz several times and Munoz falls to the ground. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The officer has been placed on leave, according to a statement from Lancaster mayor Danene Sorace and the district attorney’s office said the shooting is under investigation to determine if the officer’s use of force was justified.
Lancaster mayor Danene Sorace said in a statement that the officer involved in the shooting has been placed on leave. “This has been a heartbreaking day for our city. I grieve for the loss of life and know that there are more questions to be answered as the investigation continues,” Sorace said.

On Monday, at about 11:40 a.m., officers were called to the residence on the 2100 block of Hurley Ave for a report of a missing child.
Officers that arrived on scene quickly determined that there was a homicide.
A warrant affidavit says that Lewandowski admitted to slitting her daughter’s throat and putting her body in a trash can in the backyard.
"Lewandowski made several statements about causing harm to her daughter because she was told to do so, or something worse would happen," a detective wrote in an affidavit.

Kenosha, WI- Rioters broke windows and started several fires destroying dozens of businesses.
Dozens of vehicles were torched at a car dealership. A former employee recorded video of the scene.
"All cars are done for. There's a couple of them that are salvageable, but every one of them. It was so hot," Nicholas Smith said. "The rims actually melted into metal piles. I mean, everything is done for. The building, water damage, the fire. We'll just take what we got, try and rebuild."
"It started with one car over there in the corner, then this first SUV here," Justin Hamilton said. "Then one Audi on the other side and then it pretty much, once they started that car, within 10 minutes, I would say these first five cars were up in flames."
The owner of the dealership said more than 100 cars in the lot were destroyed.
Dozens of other business owners swept up broken glass and boarded up their ships from all of the damage.
"I understand why everyone is upset, but breaking stuff just seems pointless to me," Marty Wikel said.
Chicago, IL- A Chicago man is in custody after he spit in an Illinois State Police Trooper’s coffee.
Vincent J. Sealer, 25, was arrested on July 31st in Chicago and charged with disorderly conduct, reckless conduct, and battery to a peace officer.
On July 30, 2020, a trooper bought a large black coffee from Dunkin Donuts at 6738 West Archer Avenue in Chicago. When the trooper took the lid off of the coffee, he saw a large piece of mucus floating inside. Illinois State Police say they later confirmed it to be saliva.
ISP District Chicago Troopers immediately initiated an investigation that ultimately led to Sessler's arrest. He is an employee at the franchise.
“This is outrageous and disgusting. The men and women of the Illinois State Police put their heart and soul into protecting the lives and rights of all people in this state every day,” said ISP Director Brendan F. Kelly. “They deserve better than this insulting and dangerous treatment. For their safety, ISP officers and employees will be prohibited from patronizing this location,” he added.
The decision was immediately criticized by Nicoletti’s attorney and the police officers’ union.

city officials threatening to sue the federal GOVERNMENT over the INSTALLATION of metal barriers and fencing protecting the COURTHOUSE
The fencing was erected Wednesday to protect the courthouse in downtown Portland, according to Willamette Week. But it has since become a focus of protesters' attention after nearly two months of demonstrations, which at times have devolved into riots.
Since its installment, demonstrators have attempted to tear it down, throwing fireworks over the perimeter. In at least one instance, they lit a large fire between the barrier and the courthouse, according to social media and reports.
City officials stated "Failure to remove the fencing would violate city code and administrative rules, “and will be subject to fines and potential legal action,” said the letter"
Louisville, KY-One of the three officers involved in the death of Breonna Taylor on March 13 is being fired, mayor Greg Fischer announced Friday morning.
In a statement made by the mayor, Louisville Metro Police Department Chief Rob Schroeder is initiating termination procedures against Officer Brett Hankison.
“Unfortunately, due to a provision in state law that I very much would like to see changed, both the Chief and I are precluded from talking about what brought us to this moment, or even the timing of this decision,” the statement said.
Hankison is one of three officers that has been on administrative reassignments during the investigation of Taylor’s death. Taylor, 26, was killed during a raid at her Louisville home on March 13.
Taylor’s boyfriend thought the officers were intruders and fired a shot as they entered. Taylor was shot eight times by officers.
Hankison is accused by the department's interim chief, Robert Schroeder, of "blindly" firing 10 rounds into Taylor's apartment, creating a substantial danger of death and serious injury.
"I find your conduct a shock to the conscience," Schroeder wrote in a Friday letter to Hankison laying out the charges against him. "I am alarmed and stunned you used deadly force in this fashion."
“The result of your action seriously impedes the Department's goal of providing the citizens of our city with the most professional law enforcement agency possible. I cannot tolerate this type of conduct by any member of the Louisville Metro Police Department," he added. "Your conduct demands your termination."
