At its meeting held November 29, 2005, the Board took the following action:

      Supervisor Knabe made the following statement:

      “On September 5, 2000, Deputy Michael Schaap was shot and injured while on routine patrol and attempting to stop a van for vehicle code violations in the unincorporated area of Whittier. It was upon this stop that the suspect or suspects opened fire from inside the van with an assault rifle. Multiple rounds were fired, one of which struck Deputy Schaap in the head. He was transported to Saint Francis Medical Center where he underwent surgery to remove bullet fragments from his brain. Deputy Schaap’s tragic story was featured on the popular television series, ‘America’s Most Wanted’ and was rebroadcasted on Saturday, December 18, 2004. The detectives working on this case have indicated that an extension of the reward would be helpful in bringing resolution to Deputy Schaap’s assault.”

      Therefore, on motion of Supervisor Knabe, seconded by Supervisor Antonovich, unanimously carried (Supervisor Molina being absent), the Board reestablished the $10,000 reward offered for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator(s) responsible for the shooting and injuring of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Schaap when he attempted to stop a van for vehicle code violations at the intersection of Mulberry and Gunn, on Tuesday, September 5, 2000 at 3:17 a.m., in the unincorporated area of Whittier.
