LOS ANGELES (AP) — The coroner’s office has identified the 14-year-old girl who was fatally shot by Los Angeles police Thursday when officers fired on an assault suspect and a bullet went through the wall and struck the girl as she was in a clothing store dressing room. The teen died Thursday at a Burlington store in North Hollywood. The Los Angeles County coroner identified the girl as Valentina Orellana-Peralta and the suspect as Daniel Elena, Lopez, 24. Witnesses say a man with a bicycle chain lock attacked a woman, who was later taken to the hospital. Officers shot and killed the man and the girl was later found dead in the dressing room.
