Christopher Jordan Dorner identified as suspect in murder Fullerton College

Authorities are seeking a fired Los Angeles police officer suspected in the killings of two people, including a Cal State Fullerton basketball coach whose father represented the suspect in front of a disciplinary board when he lost his job, police said Wednesday night.
Former LAPD officer and U.S. Navy reservist Christopher JordanDorner is the suspect in the killings of Monica Quan, 28, and her 27-year-old fiancé Keith Lawrence.

The bodies of Monica Quan and Keith Lawrence were found in their car at the condominium complex where they lived, both shot to death.
Quan was an assistant basketball coach for the women’s team. Lawrence had just been hired by USC in August as a Department of Public Safety officer. He had graduated from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Academy. Both had played basketball at Concordia University in Irvine, where they met. They had recently become engaged.
Quan was in her 4th year as an assistant, 2 at Fullerton, and 2 previously at Cal State Lutheran. Women’s head basketball coach Marcia Foster said about Quan:
“I’m sorry that we are gathered here today for news like this,” Foster said. “There are really no words to convey the sadness that our program feels, that the young women who have had the priviledge of working with such a bright and passionate woman.” She added: “We just shared a moment of incredible joy with Monica on her recent engagement…” Foster said. “Here’s what I want to tell you, I want to tell you that a really bright light was put out way too soon. Somebody, whose passion was impacting young women through the game of basketball, has been taken away from us in a very unfortunate situation.”
Police said Dorner implicated himself in the killings with a multi-page “manifesto” that he wrote that included threats against several people, but would give no further details on the document or its contents.

Quan’s father, Randal Quan, a former LAPD captain who became a lawyer in retirement, represented Donner in front of the Board of Rights, a tribunal that ruled against Donner at the time of his dismissal, LAPD Capt. William Hayes told The Associated Press Wednesday night.

Police said Dorner’s manifesto included threats against members of the LAPD.

“We are looking at the manifesto and will do an assessment in terms of the threat against those listed in it, and determine what level of protection each of them will need,” Hayes said.

Soon after Dorner was identified as the suspect in the killings, messages appeared on Twitter that linked to what may be the “manifesto” the Irvine Police said had led them to conclude that the ex-LAPD officer was the killer.

The Facebook message includes threats against LAPD personnel whom Dorner apparently encountered in the course of the department’s disciplinary proceedings against him. It describes them as “high value targets” and goes on to promise “operations to destroy, exploit and seize designated targets.”

“We have strong cause to believe Dorner is armed and dangerous,” Maggard said, adding anyone who sees the suspect should immediately call 911.
Speaking at a Wednesday night news conference, Maggard asked for the public’s help in finding Dorner. Irvine police have set up a tip line (949) 724-7192 and an email address to send any information:ipdcrimetips@cityofirvine.org. Dorner was described as being 6 feet tall, about 270 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
