Margie Carranza, 47, and her mother, Emma Hernandez, 71, were delivering newspapers in Torrance on Feb. 7 when LAPD officers shot at their blue Toyota Tacoma. Hernandez was shot twice in the back, and Carranza’s hands were injured.

LAPD thought the car may have been Dorner’s, and there was an alert preceding the shooting that said a truck matching Dorner’s was in the area.
