Margie Carranza and her mother Emma Hernandez were in the midst of their newspaper deliveries on February 7, 2013 when Los Angeles police officers fired around one-hundred shots at their truck. The ladies were driving a blue Toyota pickup that was mistaken for Chris Dorner’s grey Nissan truck. During the shootout, Hernandez was shot in the back and Carranza suffered injuries from the broken glass.

Chris Dorner became the target of one of Los Angeles’s largest manhunts after killing former LAPD Captain Randal Quan’s daughter, Monica and her fiancé Keith Lawrence, a campus police officer in a parking garage.

By the end of Dorner’s reign, he had killed one civilian, killed two police officers and wounded three, kidnapped two people, and then killed himself.

Chris Dorner had written out a manifesto on his social media sites that exposed his plans. He wrote who he was to kill and why. Dorner felt that his termination from the LAPD was erroneous and everyone involved was now at risk. Given his naval and LAPD background, he was someone to approach cautiously.

Police officers followed him up to house in Angelus Oaks, California where the final standoff was held. In the action, Dorner killed a police officer and himself, and the house was burned down in an effort to force him out.

After he killed Quan and Lawrence, LAPD and then the additional officers from San Bernardino County worked hard to end the terror as quickly as they could, and because of that, mistakes occurred. The desire to stop the panic turned into action being stronger than planning.

The women have been awarded a $4.2 settlement from Los Angeles on top of the $40,000 received for car reparations after the incident. Carranza and her mother are splitting the settlement, each receiving $2.1 million.
