Shan Li and Andrew Blankstein (Los Angeles Times) | January 12, 2011

An East L.A. gang member out of prison on parole was identified Wednesday by sheriff’s officials as the person who shot a deputy in the face.

Nestor Torres, 37, was on parole with prior felony convictions for shooting into an inhabited dwelling and possession of a firearm when he allegedly shot Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Mohamed Ahmed, 27, Tuesday night, authorities said.

Ahmed and his training officer were on a routine patrol near Floral Drive and North Brannick Avenue when they saw Torres and a woman inside a vehicle parked in the red zone.

The training officer recognized Torres, and as deputies got out of their cruiser, Torres got out of his car and allegedly fired at the officers, authorities said.
