President Trump last week called the two L.A. County deputies who had been ambushed earlier this month to wish them a quick recovery.

The two deputies had been shot multiple times as they sat in their police vehicle on September 12.

Officials reported that the woman was unable to speak, but wrote messages that a sergeant from the department relayed to the president. She has sustained a gunshot wound to the jaw and to both arms.

Local media reports she was released from the hospital early Tuesday. Her partner was released last week. He was shot in the forehead, arms, and one hand.
