Women Delivering Newspapers In Torrance Shot In Manhunt For ExCop (one in the hand, one in the back)

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.

1. They're lucky to be alive

considering the number of shots fired at them - from the back.

2. Geeze, newspapers have degraded over time

and maybe delivering them should be punishable, but shooting her was a bit much.
