A GoFundMe page has raised over $300,000 in donations for the two Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies who were ambushed during a shooting while sitting in a patrol SUV at a Compton Metro station last week.

A reward for information on the suspect has also increased to $200,000.

The deputies remain hospitalized in critical conditions.

But Sheriff Alex Villanueva was hopeful about their recovery:

"Fortunately, they were spared any injury to a vital organ that would have jeopardized their life immediately,'' Villanueva told KNX Newsradio.

Outstanding sheriff added, the deputies, who were only sworn in just 14 months ago, have a long road to recovery.

The GoFundMe page, which was started by sheriff's detective Keegan McInnis, has now raised $302,000, with more than 4,300 people donating to reach the goal of $400,000.

The gunman has been on the run since the shooting took place on Saturday.

Neon Nettle reported Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva challenged NBA star Lebron James to match the reward money offered for information on the gunman.

"This challenge is to Lebron James," the sheriff said.

"I want you to match that and double that reward."

I know you care about law enforcement," Villanueva continued.

"You expressed a very interesting statement about your perspective on race relations and on officer-involved shootings and the impact that it has on the African-American community.

The gunman was filmed firing several shots at the two deputies inside the patrol car before running away.

Both officers were rushed to the hospital were protesters met them, chanting "We hope they die."
