A prayer vigil was held Thursday morning for a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputy who remains hospitalized after being shot by a lone gunman in Compton over the weekend.

Her fellow deputy, also wounded in the ambush, was released from the hospital Wednesday, but Sheriff Alex Villanueva said they both have a long recovery ahead of them.

A reward for information leading to the arrest of the shooter reached $530,000 Thursday, according to the Department.

Contributions to the deputies’ long term recovery efforts can be made through the ALADS C.A.R.E.S. Foundation.
