LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say officers guarding a target in an ex-officer’s manifesto shot and wounded multiple people in Torrance who were in a pickup.

LA police Lt. Andrew Neiman says the officers were deployed in response to Christopher Dorner’s written threats to department officials in a rambling 14-page manifesto.

The Daily Breeze in Torrance also reports that there was another police shooting nearby involving another pickup truck, but the driver wasn’t hurt.

Authorities say Dorner has implicated himself in the killing of two people in Irvine over the weekend. He’s also the suspect in the overnight killing of a police officer and critical wounding of another cop.

Police did not say how seriously the people in Torrance were injured.
