A short while later Dorner allegedly ambushed two officers waiting at a red light in Riverside, killing one, a veteran, and wounding the other, a trainee.
With dawn yet to break police lashed out but picked the wrong targets. Officers from the Hollywood division shot up a pick-up truck in Torrance, thinking it was Dorner’s grey Nissan, only to find they had wounded two women who were delivering newspapers. They were taken to hospital.
A few minutes later officers in another part of Torrance opened fire on another pick-up driven mistaken for Dorner’s. No one was injured.
Twitter erupted with complaints of trigger-happy police. Local television urged people to avoid using pick-ups until the crisis passed.
The solution is less guns. Disarm the police!
