RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - Hundreds of police are gathering to mourn a Southern California officer gunned down a week ago during an alleged revenge rampage by ex-Los Angeles policeman Christopher Dorner.
More than 100 patrol cars and motorcycles escorted the casket of Riverside Officer Michael Crain through city streets Wednesday. The cortege passed under an American flag suspended above the street by fire trucks.
The 34-year-old Crain was ambushed in his patrol car on Feb. 7. Authorities believe the shooter was Dorner, who'd written a manifesto expressing anger over his firing by the LAPD.
Dorner's believed to have died in a burning cabin in the San Bernardino Mountains on Tuesday after a shootout that killed a San Bernardino County sheriff's deputy. He's also suspected of shooting an Irvine couple earlier this month.
