Dorner manhunt: LAPD will give new truck to women shot by officersSubmitted by DeMolay on Sat, 02/09/2013 - 23:52
Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck will provide a new truck to two women injured by officers in pursuit of fugitive ex-cop Christopher Jordan Dorner, a police spokesman said Saturday.
Margie Carranza, 47, and her mother, Emma Hernandez, 71, were delivering newspapers in Torrance early Thursday when LAPD officers riddled their blue Toyota Tacoma with bullets. Hernandez was shot twice in the back, and Carranza sustained minor injuries from broken glass.
Beck has called the incident “a tragic misinterpretation” by officers working under "incredible tension” hours after Dorner allegedly shot three police officers, one fatally.
