From coast to coast, police officers are suddenly under attack.

Two Los Angeles police officers barely dodged bullets Sunday night when two gunmen fired at their car. The officers returned fire, but no one was hurt. One man was arrested, and a massive manhunt is ongoing for the second assailant, KTLA 5 News reported.

In Florida, at least one gunman reportedly fired at officers Sunday morning. Neither officer was hit, and officers did not see the suspect.

LAPD detectives have not linked the Sunday night attack to the unrest over the police killings of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, but others say the connection is clear.

On the East Coast, families still mourn the shooting deaths of NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos on Dec. 20. A shooter, motivated by recent police killings, ambushed and killed the officers while they were sitting in their patrol car.

NYPD officers have publicly demonstrated against Mayor Bill de Blasio by turning their backs to him on multiple occasions because of the attacks, further stirring the controversy over police violence.
