Massive Manhunt on for Ex-Cop Accused of Killing 3 2/7/13
February 7, 2013
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck says the fugitive ex police officer wanted in three murders has multiple weapons including an assault rifle.
Beck also says more than 40 protection details have been assigned to possible targets of fired officer Christopher Dorner.
Beck says the massive manhunt for Dorner may be the largest in the department's history.
Dorner is suspected of murdering a couple last weekend, killing one Riverside officer and wounding another early today, and wounding an LAPD officer a short time earlier.
Dorner wrote a manifesto pledging to bring "warfare" to the LAPD.
Los Angeles police are on tactical alert. The department has taken such protective measures as reassigning motorcycle officers to cars.
