Officers in a patrol car keep watch in front of the West Los Angeles police station. An attorney says he expects the city of Los Angeles to pay his clients for their trauma.

 

LOS ANGELES (AP) — An attorney representing two women accidentally hit by police gunfire during the hunt for a fugitive ex-police officer says he expects the city of Los Angeles to pay his clients for their trauma or else face a federal lawsuit.

Attorney Glen Jonas said Monday mother and daughter were mistakenly shot by Los Angeles police officers in Torrance last week while delivering newspapers from their pickup truck.

Police thought the truck could belong to Christopher Dorner, a former officer who has sworn vengeance on some of the LAPD's officers and families for his firing.

Forty-seven-year-old Margie Carranza and 71-year-old Emma Hernandez were taken to the hospital with injuries and later released.

Police Chief Charlie Beck has apologized to them and promised a new truck.
