IRVINE, Calif. – Police are waging an intensive manhunt across Southern California for a former Los Angeles cop wanted in connection with a double murder and suspected of going on a revenge shooting spree targeting other cops.
Overnight shootings in Riverside County that left one officer dead and two wounded have been linked to the former Los Angeles officer, Christopher Dorner, who was named as a suspect in the slaying of a young couple here Sunday.
Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck called on Dorner to turn himself in: "This has gone far enough. Nobody else needs to die."
He said Dorner "has multiple weapons at his disposal including assault rifles,'' and has police and military training.
