Is our City's Manhunt in your news?

I expected to see a thread here already about this. There are more things going on that are not in this article, mainly, anyone with his type of vehicle are being treated unusually by police. I'm trying to find a print story for those as well.




http://abcnews.go.com/US/christopher...ry?id=18427632


The fired ex-California cop who set off a region-wide manhunt after allegedly shooting three police officers this morning -- one fatally -- had initially gone to a yacht club near San Diego where police say he attempted to steal a boat and flee to Mexico.

Police say that former police officer Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, who officials believe posted an online manifesto outlining his plan to "terminate" his former colleagues and their families, is armed with a long gun and might have several other guns and high-capacity magazines. He is also believed to have access to military uniforms because he has served in the Navy.

"We are considering him armed and dangerous," Lt. Julia Engen of the Irvine Police Department said.

Police allege that he went to the yacht club Wednesday night at Point Loma, Calif., near San Diego to steal the boat. He aborted the attempted theft when the boat's propeller became entangled in robe, law enforcement officials said. It was at that point he is believed to have headed to Riverside, where he allegedly shot two police officers.

"He pointed a handgun at the victim [at the yacht club] and demanded the boat," Lt. David Rohowits of the San Diego Police Department said.

Police say the expert marksman shot at four officers in two incidents overnight, hitting three of them: one in Corona, Calif., and the two in Riverside, Calif

It's on our news here, but just as a story. Not really much hope of finding him here unless he takes a major wrong turn.

There is also a manifesto that was published. Odd.

I saw the story it came up on yahoo. I also heard how they are treating people unfairly with the same vehicle as the suspect. I read the manifest he wrote. I hope it's not true otherwise there is some shady things going on with the LAPD.

I'm in CT, just outside NYC, so our news is blizzard-focused today. But there is a big feature about it on Gawker (sadly, one of my main news sources.)

I didn't see it on the noon news but I did read about it on some local tv and newspapers twitter feeds.

I can't believe they just opened fire on 2 vehicles that matched his description. They actually hit 2 people. I would lock my car up in the garage if I drove what he was driving for fear of the cops just shooting me on site. You would think that they would do a little bit more checking before shooting at innocent people!

This is exactly what is bothering me. This was on one local news this morning, and now, it isn't even in the local news.

The story I heard was that these two vehicles were near the house of one of the cops listed on the manifesto and they were just shot at...like you're just driving to work and BAM BAM BAM just because you are on the same street as where one of the cops lives.

I can't imagine the lawsuits and how much they are going to cost our city.

To me this is the bigger story!
Also I heard on the radio he is driving a Nissan Titan, while the picture of the shot up vehicle just now on the news was a Toyota.

His un-edited manifesto, which has been edited to half or less of its original length on the major sites, is an eye-opener (still available elsewhere, around 22 pages.) When you kill the daughter of your attorney, you are reprehensible, but he certainly sounded as if he felt "justified" in his rampage. Hope no one else is murdered.

Been following it here. Sounds like there were a couple of incidents in Torrance during the night as well, which were mistaken identity.

I just watched a high speed police pursuit of a stolen vehicle on KTLA - they weren't sure if she had been carjacked, but ends up she was alone in the vehicle.

Now they are looking up at Big Bear....

ETA: Looks like it was one shooting in Torrance and one in Redondo

Well they have the world's attention now they shot a van up with two women in it

The two women were distributing copies of the Los Angeles Times before the terrifying incident. They were driving an aqua blue Toyota Tacoma unlike the description of the Dorner's vehicle, a gray Nissan Titan.

Handbag Lady, are you listening to/watching the news right now?

Hooooooly cow...they are having a gun battle up in Big Bear..supposedly have Dorner cornered...

A news reporter is kind of in the middle of it...they're yelling at him to leave, but he doesn't know where to go. VERY scary!!!!

You can hear all the gunfire and yelling over the reporter's cell phone...and there are possible reports of 2 officers down, although not confirmed.

ETA: They just confirmed 2 deputies have been shot. Reporter is no longer reporting live on air - not sure if it had to do with the expletives being yelled at him or if he moved out of the area.
