Women wounded in Dorner manhunt to get $4.2 million

Christopher Dorner reward

By CNN Staff

(CNN) — The two women wounded when Los Angeles police shot at their pickup truck during the manhunt for renegade ex-officer Christopher Dorner will split a $4.2 million settlement, attorneys for the city and women told reporters Tuesday.

The details of the settlement need to be approved by the Los Angeles City Council, they said.

Margie Carranza, 47, and her mother, Emma Hernandez, 71, will receive $2.1 million each.

Carranza and Hernandez were shot at as police searched for Dorner, a former police officer who was wanted for killing several people in early February.

Hernandez was shot twice in the back and Carranza suffered injuries from broken glass, CNN affiliate KTLA has reported.
