Three bystanders suffered gunshot wounds Thursday morning after California police mistakenly opened fire on individuals driving a truck that matched the description of the vehicle being driven by a suspect police say is following through on a manifesto to kill police officers, MyFoxLA.com reported.
The undercover police involved in the shooting were guarding the Torrance, Calif., home of a police officer who was considered a high-risk target for Christopher Jordan Dorner, an ex-LAPD police officer who is the main suspect in three separate murders.
A vehicle that matched the description of Dorner’s truck was driving down the road, but was delivering newspapers, the report said. Two older women were delivering papers when police opened fire, the report said. One woman was shot in the back, the other in the hand. They both are expected to survive.
Another person was shot driving a pickup truck after additional Torrance police arrived at the scene, the report said. Reports of his injuries were unclear, but he is considered to be in good condition.
