The city of Los Angeles has reached a settlement on injury claims by two women who were injured when police mistakenly opened fire on them during the manhunt for disgruntled ex-cop Christopher Dorner.
A spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney says details will be announced at 2 p.m. PDT Tuesday. He says the settlement means the women cannot pursue any future injury claims against the city.
The agreement is in addition to a $40,000 settlement reached in March to cover the loss of the women's Toyota Tacoma pickup truck.
Margie Carranza and her 71-year-old mother, Emma Hernandez, were delivering papers around 5 a.m. Feb. 7 when LAPD officers mistakenly blasted at least 100 rounds at their pickup. Hernandez was shot in the back and Carranza had minor injuries.
