    Dragnet for ex-cop wanted in killings spreads across California

    A growing dragnet for a suspect wanted in the double homicide and the shootings of three police officers failed to find the alleged gunman.

    Law enforcement authorities Thursday morning responded to the San Diego Naval Base after a report that the suspect, former LAPD officer Christopher Jordan Dorner, might be holed up in a hotel. More than a dozen patrol cars and San Diego and military police officers swooped down on the scene, but Dorner was not there, authorities told The Times.

    Officials broadened the alert to include the entire state Thursday morning, and authorities in Nevada were warned.

    The California Highway Patrol originally issued a "blue alert" for nine Southern California counties, warning that Dorner, 33, was considered "armed and extremely dangerous," early Thursday. Shortly after 9 a.m. that alert was broadened to the include the entire state.

    A statewide “high alert” was sent out about 8:30 a.m. across Nevada for Dorner, authorities with the Nevada Highway Patrol said.

    Local, state and federal authorities are involved in the search for Dorner, who threatened "unconventional and asymmetrical warfare" against police in a manifesto posted on his Facebook page.

    Ex-LAPD officer threatened to kill in online manifesto

    Dorner also threatened more than two dozen people -- including police officials -- in his manifesto. Officers from around Southern California have been deployed to protect those people. In some cases, police said, those at risk have relocated for their safety.

    When asked if police felt they were under attack, Riverside Police Lt. Guy Toussaint said: “Based on the circumstances of the shooting, yes I do.”

    Hours after authorities announced they were looking for Dorner in connection with a double homicide in Orange County, the search intensified after three police officers were shot in Riverside County and Dorner was identified as a possible suspect.

    Ex-LAPD cop tried to steal boat, flee to Mexico, authorities say

    Freeway signs urged motorists to call 911 if they saw the suspect's vehicle as officers patrolled the streets near one of the Riverside County crime scenes with rifles at the ready. Los Angeles police were on a citywide tactical alert.

    The first shooting Thursday occurred about 1:30 a.m. in Corona, where two Los Angeles Police Department officers were providing protection for someone mentioned in Dorner's manifesto, officials said. One officer suffered a graze wound to the head during a shootout and Dorner fled the scene, police said.

    A short time later, two Riverside officers were shot at the corner of Magnolia Avenue and Arlington Avenue in Riverside. Toussaint said the officers were sitting at a red light when they were ambushed. One was killed, the other was undergoing surgery Thursday morning.

    In the online manifesto, Dorner specifically named the father of Monica Quan, the Cal State Fullerton assistant basketball coach who was found dead Sunday in Irvine along with her fiance, Keith Lawrence.

    Randy Quan, a retired LAPD captain, was involved in the review process that ultimately led to Dorner’s dismissal. A former U.S. Navy reservist, Dorner was fired in 2009 for allegedly making false statements about his training officer. In the manifesto, he complained that Randy Quan and others did not fairly represent him at the review hearing.

    “The violence of action will be high .... I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty," Dorner wrote.

    Later Thursday, before dawn, two officer-involved shootings occurred in Torrance after police encountered across vehicles they thought might be Dorner's.

    The first Torrance incident occurred about 5:20 a.m. in the 19500 block of Redbeam Avenue in Torrance, Lt. Devin Chase said. That incident involved Los Angeles police detectives from the Hollywood division, sources said.

    Two women delivering newspapers were struck by gunfire and transported to an area hospital with unknown injuries, Chase said. The women were not identified. No officers were injured.

    The second incident, which involved Torrance police officers, occurred at Flagler Lane and Beryl Street about 5:45 a.m. No injuries were reported in that incident.

    Chase said both incidents involved vehicles matching the description of the one Dorner is believed to be driving.

    "Now it appears neither of them are directly related," Chase said. "In both of them, officers believed they were at the time."

    Authorities said they believe Dorner attempted to steal a boat from an elderly man about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Point Loma Yacht Club in San Diego, hours before the shootings in Riverside County.

    The boat owner reported being accosted by a burly man who tied him up, threatened him with a gun and said he wanted the boat to flee to Mexico.

    But while they were trying to get underway, a rope became entangled in the propeller and the boat was inoperable, authorities said.

    The suspect fled the scene and the boat owner was unharmed.
    About 2 a.m., a citizen reported finding property belonging to Dorner on a street near Lindbergh Field, not far from the scene of the attempted boat theft. The property included a briefcase and Dorner's LAPD badge.

    Just read the entire manifesto he wrote. It is very disturbing.

    Now I know why the police are reviewing his case. He just may be telling the truth.

    Christopher Dorner hunt: $1m reward for ex-LAPD officer



    A manhunt is underway in the San Bernadino Mountains, east of Los Angeles

    Authorities in Los Angeles have offered a $1m (£630,000) reward for information leading to the arrest of a fugitive ex-policeman suspected of three murders.

    Christopher Dorner, 33, has been on the run for the past week, following the attacks in southern California.

    Announcing the reward, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said his "reign of terror" must end.

    In an online manifesto, he swore to take revenge on police officers he blamed for his firing in 2008.

    "We will not tolerate anyone undermining the security, the tranquillity of our neighbourhoods," Mr Villaraigosa said at a news conference announcing the reward on Sunday.

    "We will not tolerate this reign of terror that has robbed us of the peace of mind that residents of southern California deserve," he added.

    This guy is an aggravation. Last Sunday, I received a telephone call from the EX-GF that is LAPD. She had given me (and my mom) KMA-367 (LAPD call sign) license plate holders (it's basically a cop license plate holder so hopefully other cops don't ticket you). Anyways, she calls upset and asks me to remove the plate holders from the cars because there was a lunatic who put up a manifesto that he was going to target anyone who has those plate holders on their car (the threat to shoot KMA-367 plate holders is on page 9 of the manifesto). There was a general alert issued by the LAPD to all its officers to inform their friends and family to remove the plate holders. Hence the phone call. And to top it off, I am within 15 miles of the shooting location.

    This guy is mental, and he should have been washed out of the LAPD. First off, if he was unhappy with his board review, then he should have gone after the people on the board--the cops. He shot the captain's daughter and her fiancee in their car, late at night. They were unarmed and they never saw it coming. It's one thing to get into a shoot out with an armed police officer...it's another to ambush innocent UNARMED civilians when they aren't expecting it. And I think it's just chickenshit to go after the LAPD by threatening to kill the friends and families.

    I have read the manifesto. I know exactly what he was talking about on the boards. SOB got a fair hearing. He should have been washed out on psych reasons before he was admitted to the academy.

    Christopher Dorner shootout: Smoke, flame amid 'tactical operation'

    moke and flames were visible from the area where fugitive law enforcement officer Christopher Jordan Dorner was holed up in a Big Bear-area cabin after gun battles with law enforcement officers.

    Law enforcement sources said "a tactical operation" was underway at the cabin but did not provide further details.

    A tall plume of smoke was rising from the area where the standoff occurred. Hundreds of law enforcement personnel swooped down on the site near Big Bear following the gun battles between Dorner and officers that broke out in the snow-covered mountains where the fugitive had been eluding a massive manhunt since his truck was found burning in the area late last week.

    Law enforcement personnel in military-style gear and armed with high-powered weapons were involved in a tense standoff after Dorner took refuge in the cabin Tuesday afternoon.

    One San San Bernardino County sheriff's deputy died of his wounds after he and another deputy were wounded in an exchange of gunfire outside the cabin in which hundreds of rounds were fired, sources told The Times. The deputy was airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center, where he died of his wounds.

    The afternoon gun battle was part of a quickly changing situation that began after Dorner allegedly broke into a home, tied up a couple and held them hostage before fleeing with their white pickup truck, authorities said.

    Then Dorner was allegedly spotted by a state Fish and Wildlife officer in the pickup truck, sources said. A vehicle-to-vehicle shootout ensued. The officer's vehicle was peppered with multiple rounds, according to authorities.

    Dorner crashed his vehicle and took refuge in a nearby cabin, sources said. One deputy was hit as Dorner fired out of the cabin and a second deputy was injured when Dorner exited the back of the cabin, deployed a smoke bomb and opened fire again in an apparent attempt to flee. Dorner was driven back inside the cabin, the source said.

    During the unprecedented manhunt, officers had crisscrossed California for days pursuing the more than 1,000 tips that poured in about Dorner's possible whereabouts — including efforts in Tijuana, San Diego County and Big Bear — and serving warrants at homes in Las Vegas and the Point Loma area of San Diego.

    Statewide alerts were issued in California and Nevada, and border authorities were alerted. The Transportation Security Administration also had issued an alert urging pilots and other aircraft operators to keep an eye out for Dorner.

    The search turned to Big Bear last week after Dorner's burning truck was found on a local forest road.

    At the search's height, more than 200 officers scoured the mountain, conducting cabin-by-cabin checks. It was scaled back Sunday — about 30 officers were out in the field Tuesday, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department said.

    Dorner allegedly threatened "unconventional and asymmetrical warfare" against police in a lengthy manifesto that authorities say he posted on Facebook. The posting named dozens of potential targets, including police officers, whom Dorner allegedly threatened to attack, according to authorities.

    Records state that the manifesto was discovered by authorities Wednesday, three days after the slaying of an Irvine couple: Monica Quan, a Cal State Fullerton assistant basketball coach, and her fiance, Keith Lawrence, a USC public safety officer.

    Quan was the daughter of a retired LAPD captain whom Dorner allegedly blamed in part for his firing from the force in 2009.

    Body found after California cabin shootout



    A body has been found in a burnt mountain cabin in California where a man believed to be a ex-policeman accused of three murders had mounted a last stand against police, reports say.

    This comes after a shootout in which a local sheriff's deputy was killed and another injured.

    Smoke and flames were later seen rising from the cabin in the Big Bear area, as a police Swat team went in.

    The gunman was believed to be Christopher Dorner, 33.

    Los Angeles police say no body found in cabin

    Smoke and flames were seen rising from the cabin during the siege

    Police in California have denied reports that a body was found in a burnt-out mountain cabin where a man believed to be a ex-policeman accused of three murders was holed up.

    Flames were seen rising from the cabin, as a police Swat team went in.

    There were initially reports that a burnt body had been found, but police say the remains of the cabin have yet to be searched.

    This comes after a shoot-out in which a local sheriff's deputy was killed.

    Another police officer is in hospital with injuries.

    The gunman was believed to be Christopher Dorner, 33, a former member of the Los Angeles police force.

    He had reportedly sworn revenge on police officers he blamed for his sacking in 2008.

    But, denying earlier news reports that a body had been found, Los Angeles Police Commander Andrew Smith said the cabin was "still too hot and no inspectors had access to it yet".

    well everyone knew he would be assassinated before he had a chance to get to trial. No one will ever know what happened although I would hope there is at least one decent reported left in the states who will take a look beyond what the crooked cops blurt out.

    So it appears there is a body in there, and the Police straigth away said "Oh we never wanted to burn the cabin" at the same time as a copy of their radio discussion planning the Burn "as planned" hit the news.

    These cops need investigating, and they need putting in prison for murder of a man who was innocent (not proven guilty).
