Tip on fugitive sends LA police to shopping center

IRVINE, Calif. (AP) - Police have evacuated a Los Angeles home improvement store after a caller said they had seen someone resembling a fugitive ex-police officer suspected of three killings.

Los Angeles police spokesman Gus Villanueva says the caller reported a sighting of 33-year-old Christopher Dorner on Sunday. Police were sent to the Northridge area but Villanueva couldn't say whether the tip has turned out to be legitimate.

News helicopters showed police helping customers and employees leave a Lowe's Home Improvement store. A command post has been established nearby.

The search since Thursday evening had focused on mountains 80 miles east of Los Angeles where Dorner's burned truck was found. But authorities have found no recent signs of Dorner.

LA officials announced a $1 million reward earlier Sunday for information leading to Dorner's arrest.
