By Monday, the coroner had identified the five as: Pilot Scott Shepherd and wife Lara Shepherd of Diablo, Nasim Ghanadan of Alamo, and Floria Hakimi of Danville and her son Navid Hakimi of Los Angeles.

Authorities said the Cessna 414 aircraft-registered to a San Francisco real estate firm-went down at 12:28 p.m. on Sunday at the parking lot of a Staples store in the 3900 block of Bristol Street, about two miles away from its destination, John Wayne Airport.

Police Chief Danielle Outlaw, who assumed command less than a year ago as Portland's first black female police chief, said in a statement that she takes all use-of-force cases seriously.

No one on the ground was injured.

The plane that took off from Concord's Buchanan Airport was heading to the airport southeast of Los Angeles when it came down and struck an unoccupied parked auto in the lot of a Staples store and a CVS pharmacy, said Orange County Fire Authority Captain Steve Concialdi.

Pacific Union, a San Francisco-based brokerage, is the eighth-largest brokerage by sales volume in the country, according to its website.

The pilot declared an emergency but didn't state the nature of his problem before crashing about a mile (1.6 kilometers) from John Wayne Airport, striking four parked cars, National Transportation Safety Board investigator Albert Nixon said today.

Speaking to the New York Times, Bommarito said, "If [the pilot] did do anything that prevented him from going anywhere else that was more crowded, he did a great job".

Category III Aviation Corp. did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Tony Bommarito with the Orange County Fire Authority says. We looked up and we just saw a plane fall. "It wasn't much devastation [on the ground] other than the actual plane crash".

There was no explosion upon impact, but the plane fell on a red Chevrolet sedan and damaged 3 other cars in the parking lot.
