LAPD: Ex-officer suspect in Riverside cop killing

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The hunt for a former Los Angeles police officer wanted in a series of shootings now extends to San Diego, where police say a man matching Christopher Dorner's description attempted to steal a boat from a marina last night. Hours later, Dorner's badge and ID were found near the San Diego airport.

Authorities are also searching the Las Vegas area, where Dorner has a home.

He is suspected of killing of two people in Irvine over the weekend. One victim was the daughter of a former police captain who represented him during disciplinary proceedings that led to his firing. Dorner is now also suspected of killing one police officer and wounding another overnight in Riverside.

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.
