LAPD Shooting Victims Struggle to Get New Truck

Los Angeles city attorney gets involved to try to set things right


The Los Angeles city attorney is stepping in after the LAPD's plan to donate a truck to newspaper delivery women 71-year-old Emma Hernandez and her daughter, Margie Carranza, has proven to be unsuccessful.

Traveling in their pickup truck while delivering newspapers in a Torrance neighborhood, the pair was shot at by police during a frenzied manhunt for an ex-officer wanted in a revenge-motivated killing spree.

"It's going to be handled competently, it's going to be handled appropriately and in the best interests of the city of Los Angeles," said City Attorney Carmen Trutanich.
