  • Plane crash

The victims were identified Monday as 29-year-old Nasim Ghanadan, a Bay Area Realtor; fellow Bay Area real estate agents Floria Hakami, 62, and Lara Shepherd, 42; Hakami's 32-year-old son, Navid Hakami, of Los Angeles; and the pilot, Scott Shepherd, 53, also of the Bay Area.

The twin-engine Cessna plane crashed in Santa Ana, and had been bound to John Wayne Airport in Orange County, said Capt.

Taylor Darling-Daniel, a local resident, who lived near the crash site said that she was eating her lunch with her friend while watching a plane doing tricks at low altitude.

No one on the ground was injured.

The plane was heading to the airport southeast of Los Angeles and had been cleared to land when it came down in the parking lot of a Staples store and a CVS pharmacy, NTSB officials said.

Hakimi and two victims were co-workers at Pacific Union International, a San Francisco Bay Area real estate firm. The FAA said the pilot, identified as Scott Shepherd, declared an emergency just before the crash.

Lara Shepherd was relatively new to the business, but successful, according to Moggan.

The Cessna 414 aircraft had declared an emergency before the incident, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

"She dedicated her life professionally and personally to service and to be in the service of others", Moggan said.

Category III Aviation Corp. did not immediately respond to a request for comment. He says there was no fire and nobody on the ground was hurt.

Police Chief Danielle Outlaw, who assumed command less than a year ago as Portland's first African-American female police chief, said in a statement Sunday she takes all use-of-force cases seriously. "Unfortunately, it was tragic that five people died on the plane". "It was so heartbreaking just seeing the plane crumbled into pieces".

The plane crashed into the parking lot of a shopping area in the 3800 block of South Bristol Street, about a mile northwest from John Wayne Orange County Airport, where the aircraft was headed.
