Christopher Dorner, who has military training and was fired from the LAPD in 2008, declared war on police after he posted a manifesto online stating, "I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty. Unfortunately, I will not be alive to see my name cleared. That's what this is about, my name. A man is nothing without his name."
One officer is already dead and his colleague critically injured after they were shot as they sat in a patrol car at a red light in Riverside, Calif. Police described it as a "cowardly ambush."
The shooting happened 20 minutes after an intense firefight between police and the suspect before he managed to escape. Mr. Dorner is also a suspect in the shooting deaths earlier this week of a woman and her fiancé in a parking garage in Irvine, Calif.
"My opinion of the suspect is unprintable. The manifesto I think speaks for itself as evidence enough of a depraved and abandoned mind and heart," Riverside police Chief Sergio Diaz told reporters.
