According the San Diego police have reported that a citizen found ID wallet containing a badge and ID belongings.
The manhunt for Christopher Dorner has been extended to 3 counties in California and Nevada. The FBI performed a law enforcement action at the Las Vegas residence of Christopher Dorner. The surrounding neighborhood was cleared for safety reasons as the law enforcement action was completed. In support of the ongoing manhunt for Christopher Dorner, the FBI Las Vegas Field Office is assisting the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, Henderson Police Department, Los Angeles Police Department, Irvine Police Department and the FBI Los Angeles Field Office. More information will be provided if and when the situation dictates.
It appears that Dorner intends to kill as many cops as he can through sniper attacks. Cops have to exercise all of their training and remain alert until Dorner is stopped. We can only guess what the body count may be before this rampage is terminated.
Many schools have closed in light of the potential threat.
Dorner blames one retired officer for bungling his appeal to get his job back in an 11-page manifesto, in which he also complained of mistreatment by the LAPD. In that letter — provided to CNN by an LAPD source — he vowed to violently target police officers and their families, whoever and wherever they are.
“I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty,” Dorner wrote.
“I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I’m terminating yours.”
Dorner also is well aware that if he escapes to Mexico he will never be extradited to the USA unless and until they guarantee that the death penalty will not be an option. We cannot be certain at this point that there are not additional undiscovered homicide victims waiting to be found.
Around 1:45 a.m., two officers from the Los Angeles Police Department were in the area of the 15 freeway and Magnolia Avenue in the Riverside area. The officers were part of a special detail related to the search for Christopher Jordan Dorner, who is wanted by Irvine Police Department for a double homicide that occurred on February 4th.
A citizen approached the officers and directed them to a vehicle that matched that of Christopher Dorner’s metallic grey Nissan Titan pickup truck. The officers quickly responded to where the vehicle was parked and observed an individual in the vehicle who fit the description of Dorner. The suspect vehicle sped away, and the officers followed as the vehicle entered the 15 freeway near Magnolia Avenue. The suspect then opened fire on the officers while they were in their vehicle, at which time an officer-involved shooting occurred. The suspect drove away in his Nissan pickup truck and is currently being sought by LAPD and Riverside law enforcement agencies. It is unknown if the suspect was injured during the shooting.
One officer sustained a non-life-threatening wound to the head, was treated and remained at the scene of the incident. The LAPD Force Investigation Division responded to the incident and will conduct the officer-involved shooting investigation. The investigation will ultimately be reviewed by the Chief of Police, Office of the Inspector General, and the Board of Police Commissioners for compliance with the Department’s use-of-force policy, which states that an officer’s use-of-force actions must be objectively reasonable. Additionally, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Justice System Integrity Division will conduct a comprehensive review of the facts of the officer-involved shooting.
At 5:20 a.m. in the 19500 block of Redbeam Avenue according to sources. The extent of their injures has not been made public.
The second incident involved Torrance police, and occurred at Flagler Lane and Beryl Street at approximately 5:45 a.m. No injuries were reported in that incident.
According to Torrance police Lt. Devin Chase Neither event was directly related to hunted suspect, Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, who as of Thursday morning remains at large.
The former LAPD Harbor Division officer is suspected of killing a couple in Irvine and a police officer in Riverside.
A massive, multiagency manhunt had been launched for Dorner after three police officers were shot; one fatally.
The night before, authorities announced that Dorner was sought in connection with a double homicide in Orange County over the weekend.
Dorner posted an online manifesto in which he threatened to harm police officials and their families, authorities said, and he is considered “armed and extremely dangerous.”
The first Thursday shooting occurred about 1:30 a.m. in Corona, where two Los Angeles Police Department officers were providing protection fora person mentioned in Dorner’s s manifesto, officials said. One officer suffered a grazing head wound during a shootout and Dorner fled the scene, police said.
Dorner is the prime suspect of the double murder of Monica Quan and Keith Lawrence Sunday night is believed to be the work of a former LAPD officer. Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, was dismissed from his position as a police officer in 2008 for allegedly making false statements about his training officer.
Dorner complained that Quan and others did not fairly represent him at the review hearing.
“Your lack of ethics and conspiring to wrong a just individual are over. Suppressing the truth will leave to deadly consequences for you and your family.
“There will be an element of surprise where you work, live, eat, and sleep,” he wrote, referring to Quan and several others.
“I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I’m terminating yours,” he added. Quan apparently served as Dorner’s representative, according to the manifesto.
“He doesn’t work for you, your interest, or your name,” Dorner wrote of Quan. “He works for the department, period.”
“His job is to protect the department from civil lawsuits being filed and their best interest which is the almighty dollar. His loyalty is to the department, not his client.”
In the document, he threatens violence against other police officers.
