L.A. Now Live: Latest on manhunt for Ex-LAPD cop Christopher Dorner

Join Times staff writers Andrew Blankstein and Phil Willon at 9:30 a.m. Friday to discuss the latest on the search for fugitive ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner, wanted on suspicion of killing three people -- including one cop -- and wounding two others in Southern California attacks.

Police across California and Nevada launched an unprecedented manhunt involving hundreds of officers from dozens of agencies.

In a Facebook manifesto police say Dorner wrote, he ranted against LAPD personnel who he said fired him unfairly. He threatened revenge, "unconventional and asymmetrical warfare" against police and their families, saying he would stalk them "where you work, live, eat, and sleep."

Authorities took him at his word.

"Of course he knows what he's doing — we trained him," Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said. "It is extremely worrisome and scary, especially to the police officers involved."

The search on Friday remained centered in Big Bear, where Dorner's Nissan Titan was found burning on a forest road. Snowy tracks were spotted near the trucks, but did not lead to Dorner.
