The Los Angeles Police Department held a press conference late this afternoon to announce a $1 million reward for the arrest and capture of Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, the only suspect in the killings of three people in the L.A. area, including one police officer.
The Los Angeles Times published this from the press conference:
Police Chief Charlie Beck said the reward was "the largest local reward ever offered to our knowledge." The reason for such a significant reward, Beck said, was "not about capturing a fleeing suspect, but about preventing another crime, likely another murder."
Dorner, a former LAPD officer and veteran of the U.S. Navy is a trained killer; trained by some of the most knowledgeable and best sharp-shooters our nation has to offer.
The killing spree is thought to have been spurred by Dorner’s firing from the LAPD in 2009.
Among those killed in the alleged rampage was Monica Quan, 28, daughter of retired LAPD officer Randy Quan. Monica's fiancé, Keith Lawrence was also gunned down, likely because he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The police officer killed in the spree has not been named.
The clues to Dorner's whereabouts have seemingly gone cold in the last 24-hours in spite of more than 100 police and search officials hot on his trail.
It is unknown if Dorner has holed-up with friends, bolted for the US/Mexico border or has already committed suicide.
Members of the Los Angeles Police Department and other agencies are being tight-lipped about any information related to the case.
