One of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies injured in an ambush shooting has now been released from the hospital.

The 24-year-old deputy was shot by a gunman as he sat in his squad car with his partner. The department said he was released Wednesday but has a long road of recovery ahead of him.

The 31-year-old deputy is still in the hospital. They both suffered critical injuries and had to have surgery.

The gunman is still on the loose, and officials are offering a reward of up to $300,000 for information leading to an arrest.
