Women shot in Calif. manhunt will to get new truck
A mother and daughter newspaper delivery team who were mistakenly shot by Los Angeles police hunting for a fugitive former cop will get a new pickup truck courtesy of the department.
LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith says the department's Chief Charlie Beck met with the women in their Torrance home Saturday to apologize and tell them he had arranged for someone to donate a new pickup truck.
The truck will be donated early this week, Smith said.
The women were accidentally struck by gunfire in the pre-dawn hours Thursday after it was reported that Christopher Dorner was seen in the area. Beck called it a case of mistaken identity.
Dorner has vowed to avenge his firing from the department, which he wrote in an online manifesto was retaliation for reporting officer violence.
