Two women delivering newspapers were shot in Torrance early today by LAPD officers involved in a manhunt for an ex-LAPD officer suspected of shooting three police officers and an Irvine couple, sources say.

The women, shot in the 19500 block of Redbeam Avenue, were taken to area hospitals, police said. One of the women was shot in the hand, and the other in the back, according to witness Jesse Escochea.

Police said the women were riding in a truck similar to the one that suspect Christopher Jordan Dorner is believed to be driving.
