Bounty of $1 million on fugitive former US police officer
Los Angeles: Los Angeles police have announced a reward of $1 million for information leading to the capture of a former police officer suspected of killing three people.
Police Chief Charlie Beck and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced the bounty at a news conference for finding Christopher Jordan Dorner, who was fired in 2009, reported Xinhua.
Authorities said Dorner killed a couple in Irvine and a police officer in Riverside and injured two others in a revenge campaign against police last week.
Dorner was fired after a police disciplinary board found him guilty of making false statement against his training officer, whom he accused of kicking a mentally-ill man during an arrest in 2007.
Beck said police will re-open investigation into the firing of Dorner, in a bid to put the public thinking to rest.
A statement posted on what is believed to be Dorner`s Facebook page criticized racism in LAPD (Los Angeles Police Department).
A massive manhunt for Dorner began last week as police were searching from Riverside to Corona to Big Bear to Point Loma in San Diego, a large area in Southern California. They found Dorner`s abandoned car Thursday in flames in Big Bear.
