    Off-Duty Sheriff Deputy Slain In Wrigley Area, Circumstances Still Unclear

    (March 29, 2006) -- A 30-year old off-duty L.A. Sheriff's Deputy, on her way to work on March 28, was shot and mortally wounded at about 6:00 a.m. as she left the Wrigley area residence of a friend in the 2900 block of Eucalyptus Ave. The shooting triggered an intense search...but no suspects in custody or publicly identified...and some of the circumstances remain unclear as post.

    What is known is that LBPD responded to the location and found Maria Cecelia Rosa suffering from gunshot wounds.

    Deputy Rosa was rushed to nearby Memorail Hospital but succumbed to her wounds.

    An reader captured the sad scene outside the emergency room as LBPD and LASD officers gathered...and a helicopter hovered overhead.
