Tiny 71-Year-Old Woman Was Shot Twice In The Back During The LAPD's Manhunt


Police who were hunting a former LAPD cop accidentally 

shot a 71-year-old woman and her daughter as they 

delivered the LA Times, that newspaper reports.
Sources told the LA Times cops were trying to protect 
an LAPD officer named in former cop Christopher 
Dorner's online manifesto when they shot the two 
women in Torrance, Calif.
Cops thought the royal blue Toyota Tacoma occupied by 
71-year-old Emma Hernandez and her 47-year-old 
daughter Maggie Carranza matched descriptions for 
reported.
"Tragically, we believe this is a case of mistaken 
identity," LAPD Chief Charlie Beck told reporters.
But the women's lawyer, Glen Jonas, hinted that cops 
were being overzealous in trying to protect their own, 
according to the LA Times story.
"The problem with the situation is it looked like the cops 
were administering street justice and didn't take the time 
to notice that these two older, small Latina women don't 
look like a large black man," Jonas told the Times.
Hernandez was shot twice in the back and was stable as 
of late Thursday, Jonas told the Times. Her daughter just 
had stitches in her finger.
