Thanks for keeping up the positive notes everyone. Ali is my cousin. Looks like shoulder surgery tomorrow. He's doing well, considering. I'm not sure when I'll be allowed to see him, but the better he's doing the more relieved I feel. This situation.. there's just nothing like it. I want you to know that I appreciate all of your kind words. For him, for me too. It helps me deal with it. thanks.

Here's the latest on what they think happened. This may not be exactly what went down. Perez and Johnson went to the apartment to make the arrest on the child porn charges. They had the key to the unit given them by the girlfriend, and when they tried to open the door, it appeared to be barricaded. They got it open, and entered the apartment and started to do a sweep. The perp came out from around a corner and opened up on them with an M1 chambered in .308 Perez was hit three times in the torso, and Johnson was hit in the arm, and the bullet traveled up to his shoulder. Johnson emptied his magazine at the perp and hit him two or three times.

This is when the unnamed SDPD SWAT guy who had pulled over heard the shots and put on his heavy armor. He then went up to the unit and help the wounded deps get to the apartment next door. the other deps who were accompanying Perez and Johnson engaged the perp, who eventually stopped firing, probably from a loss of blood. That's as much as the person who relayed it to me knows.

Subject: Request to Donate Blood - A Message from the Sheriff's Department

Hello Friends -

As I'm sure you all know, two of our own (Detective Ali Perez and Sgt Craig Johnson) were shot with a high power rifle on Tuesday afternoon as they attempted to arrest a child molester. Craig is stable, but still has a long recovery ahead of him.

We almost lost Ali the first night because he had internal bleeding and they couldn't identify the source. At one point the doctors came out of surgery saying it didn't look good and we needed to prepare ourselves for the worst. Ali is a fighter and fortunately they were finally able to find the source and stop the bleeding. Ali is still critical and not even close to being out of the woods, but I truly believe all the love and support from friends and family is giving Ali the will and drive to continue fighting.

Ali had surgery this morning, is scheduled for another surgery on Saturday and will likely have more surgeries over the course of the next several months. He has lost a lot of blood and will lose more during the subsequent surgeries, so the San Diego Blood Bank has set up a donation account for him. Ali has O+ blood, but any blood type is accepted and will be credited to Ali's account. See information below.

I am asking all of you to please pass the information below to anyone who is willing to donate.

Thank you all in advance!!

[Name removed] from the Sheriff's Department


Detective Perez' blood type is 0 POSITIVE. YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE 0 POSITIVE! TO DONATE. When you go to any San Diego Blood Bank facility, tell them you are donating in Detective Perez' name and provide the following code:

CODE: DSVF

Detective Perez will receive all the blood he requires during his recovery and the cost/availability will be offset by donations.
Thanks for the info! Scheduled an appointment to donate tomorrow.

My thoughts are with you kotetu and of course the deputies, their families and fellow deputies. I hope for a full recovery for both.

All though I'm retired, I still consider them brother leos; that never changes.

Back in LA now. Ali is doing pretty well. He's uncomfortable, though. For one thing he's too big for the bed! He keeps stretching his legs right off of the thing. Of course the medical devices (tubes and such) are bothering him too.

When I went to see him the first time he was in an out of consciousness, but the second time, around 8 PM, he was awake and aware, but confused. Probably due to a combination of the pain and the pain meds, he wasn't sure where he was or what had happened. He was frustrated at not being able to use his voice, but we were able to read his lips and answer his questions. Just orienting him as to where he was helped calm him and let him relax.

I did get some smiles from him and he gave us the thumbs up several times, so he's definitely hanging in there and doing well.

It looks like there will be another surgery next week on the arm, so if you're in the neighborhood and you haven't donated blood yet, please do! Every unit helps.

Thanks fellas!

I'm sorry I don't know Craig and did not meet him while I was visiting with Ali. I am going again on Sunday, perhaps he will be there.

I've worked with Deputy Johnson on several occasions when I was in SAR for the SDSO. He's a good Deputy, I hope both Deputies have a speedy recovery. When I heard about it, it was like a punch to the gut; I had also gotten some other really bad news that week. I hope justice is actually served in this circumstance...

Hi everyone. Thanks again for your support - Ali is doing great, he's continually surprising the doctors with his fast recovery.

i hope the deputies make it.
on another note i don't see "alleged" or anyone saying "presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law" especially from people that claim to support the constitution..... glad to not see "assault rifle" in any news article and also someone reporting " i heard this strange ping sound"

Thanks Billmaykafer! Ali is doing great after several surgeries and lots of rest and effort. The big challenge right now is the nerve damage in his arm. He's working on it, but it will take more time before he's back to normal.

The shooter isn't even on my mind. They've got him and I won't spare him another thought.


Back to the update I meant to write: The bake sale was a big success, raising about $500 in an afternoon. I have a gift certificate for Star Leather USA, owned and operated by our very own FredoSD, an amazing craftsman. Check out the link in my sig. Belts, holsters, portfolio covers, sheathes, you name it, he can do it. All hand crafted and to order. I'll be donating the full sale amount to my cousin's family as well, so this is another way you can help out.

It's 11 months later, and Ali has made fantastic inroads into regaining full control of his arm and hand. He's got a long way to go, but it's all going to happen. I wanted to share this with you guys and once again thank you, thank you so much, for your well wishing.
