Two women who were shot by Los Angeles police in Torrance early Thursday during a massive manhunt for an ex-LAPD officer were delivering newspapers, sources said.
The women, shot in the 19500 block of Redbeam Avenue, were taken to area hospitals, Torrance police Lt. Devin Chase said. They were not identified. One was shot in the hand and the other in the back, according to Jesse Escochea, who captured video of the victims being treated.
It was not immediately known what newspapers the women were delivering. After the shooting, the blue pickup was riddled with bullet holes and what appeared to be newspapers lay in the street alongside.
Apparently this is a breaking story because the LA Times is throwing out lot’s of speculation instead of facts.
What they are not reporting is why the cops shot the shit out of the pickup the two ladies were delivering newspapers out of or identified what news outlet the papers were from.
Delicious irony tells me it should be the LA Times.
Local, state and federal authorities are involved in a massive search for Christoper Jordan Dorner, 33, a former Los Angeles Police Department officer who threatened “unconventional and asymmetrical warfare” against police in an online manifesto, and was suspected of shooting three police officers, one of whom died, early Thursday in Riverside County.
Dorner also is suspected of killing a couple in Orange County earlier this week.
A second shooting, involving Torrance police officers, occurred about 5:45 a.m. at Flagler Lane and Beryl Street in Torrance. No injuries were reported in that incident.
Chase said that in both instances police came across vehicles they thought were similar to the one Dorner is believed to be driving. Neither vehicle was Dorner’s.
“Now it appears neither of them are directly related,” Chase said. “In both of them, officers believed they were at the time.”
These guys must be tired from jumping to all these conclusions.
If I was in that area I would be finding a place to chill out that had really thick walls, it sounds like these trigger happy motherfuckers aren’t done yet.
Oh, that’s right, the police are there to protect us, I almost forgot.
Now go tell that to the two innocent ladies currently recovering from gun shot wounds inflicted by those same scared enough to shit themselves cops.
