A Riverside County sheriff’s deputy was in critical condition Monday, Oct. 2, after being shot at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival in Las Vegas on Sunday.

A corrections deputy was also shot, Riverside County sheriff’s Deputy Michael Vasquez said, but was treated at a hospital and released.

The Sheriff’s Department declined to identify the deputies or provide any other information about them, including where they are assigned.

“Due to privacy concerns, we are unable to confirm the name of the deputy sheriff and correctional deputy which were injured as a result of this tragic incident. Thank you for your understanding,” Vasquez said.

The Riverside Sheriffs’ Association, the union that represents deputies, also declined to release any information.
