4. Shooting victims thus far

 

http://timelines.latimes.com/statewide-manhunt-ex-lapd-officer/

Shot by Christopher Dorner, ex military, ex LAPD, suspect.

Monica Quan (daughter of LAPD police captain) and her fiance, in Irvine (2/3) (2 deaths)

Mon­ica Quan, an as­sist­ant coach at Cal State Fuller­ton, and her fi­ance, Keith Lawrence, were found shot to death in a park­ing gar­age of an up­scale con­domin­i­um in Irvine. In an on­line mani­festo pos­ted after the shoot­ing, Dorner com­plained that Quan’s fath­er, re­tired L.A. po­lice cap­tain Randy Quan, did not fairly rep­res­ent him a dis­cip­lin­ary re­view pro­cess that ul­ti­mately led to Dorner’s 2008 dis­missal from the po­lice force.

LAPD cop (2/7)

A Los Angeles Po­lice De­part­ment of­ficer provid­ing pro­tec­tion for a per­son men­tioned in the sus­pect’s on­line mani­festo was struck in a shootout in Corona at about 1:45 a.m. The of­ficer suf­fer­ing a graze wound to the head.

2 Riverside Cops (2/7) (1 death)

Shortly after the shoot­ing in Corona, two River­side po­lice of­ficers stopped at a red light were “am­bushed” by a shoot­er, au­thor­it­ies said.

One of the of­ficers, a 34-year-old, 11-year vet­er­an of the force, was killed, River­side po­lice Chief Ser­gio Diaz told re­port­ers. A 27-year-old of­ficer was wounded, but is ex­pec­ted to fully re­cov­er.


Shot by LAPD

2 women from Torrance

At 5:20 a.m., Los Angeles po­lice de­tect­ives came across a vehicle sim­il­ar to the one Dorner is be­lieved to be driv­ing. Two wo­men who were re­portedly de­liv­er­ing news­pa­pers were shot and trans­por­ted to an area hos­pit­al with un­known in­jur­ies.

(One was shot in the hand, the other in the back by LAPD officers. Their blue pickup was "riddled with bullet holes".)

6. In regard to the two women shot by LAPD "by mistake" in Torrance

 

People are not very happy about that. Apparently LAPD shot before ascertaining who was in the vehicle. The vehicle was shot from the back.


Some great comments from LA Times readers on this one:

Elizabeth Conley · Top Commenter · Sales Associate at Prudential Towne Realty
So the LAPD "feels threatened," and suddenly the entire civilian public is just one big fat target to them? This is why we consider our nation's police to be the nation's Most Deadly Street Gang. This is a gang mentality, not a law enforcement mentality.

Cal Murphy · Top Commenter
Have a blue Nissan pickup in my driveway and wish it were on the street! OMG These cops are out of control insane!

Peter Wright
notice how the truck they shot up is a Toyota Tacoma. That's some great police work there boys...

26. The two women LAPD shot were ELDERLY ASIAN WOMEN delivering the LA Times--KFI Radio 1:13pm

 

This means they never even looked in the truck, since you can't possibly mistake a couple of elderly Asian women for a 270 pound, 6 foot African American man. And they even got the truck wrong.

23. The news keeps changing on this. KFI has been pretty careful to say the truck "might" be his

 

I'm wondering whose truck it is and why they haven't claimed it.

Of course, considering that this Dorner tied up a boat owner in San Diego last night but didn't take his boat, then dropped his ID at the San Diego airport, and then apparently did check in to some Point Loma motel, it makes you wonder if he wasn't setting up a bunch of red herrings. He's had lots of years to think about this. He seems to be messing with LAPD's collective mind.

43. If you look at the pic, it matches the description they've been giving since 5 am this morning

 

Of course, if it's been burning since last night, ostensibly after the cops in Corona and Riverside were shot, then he's had a lot of time to hide. Of course he might have had another vehicle up there which is long gone.

He said the police used unnecessary force and basically beat the guy Rodney King style, while the rest of the cops insisted they were angels.

I mean yeah there are those kind of cops everywhere and probably getting worse, but there's still good ones out there.

I just don't know what I would do just not being able to get justice like that. I don't mean Dorner, I mean the citizens. I can't imagine the frustration, the hate building up. The futility.

We need camera's throughout the police stations. We can no longer trust that good people are in charge.

Wow.

This is all about cop, whether you like it or not. His previous job, his manifesto, all of it, the people killed are related to the cops of his firing, I mean it's cop on cop stuff no matter what blows your panties up.

27. We disagree then. Since it's so integral to the situation, it's accurate.

 

If it makes you feel better I'll start using the term Killer Ex-cop. Won't matter, we will all really still go to the same place. Cops with guns can be some of the most dangerous. Seems every day here in LA I'm learning that there are questionable police shootings all the time. They seem like a pretty corrupt bunch, ex or not.

warfare against LAPD, at least according to his Facebook post. Right now, all the police forces are on the defensive. Police are communicating by cell phone, not by their normal radio, because they believe Dorner is monitoring police radio.

25. And apparently the police are shooting innocent folks in their panic. Newspaper delivery ladies.

 

http://laist.com/2013/02/07/police_shoot_motorists_mistaken_for_dorner.php

During the manhunt for former Los Angeles Police Department officer Christopher Dorner Thursday, Los Angeles and Torrance police were involved in two shootings in Torrance. In a multi-page online manifesto, Dorner implicated himself in the recent fatal shootings of an Irvine couple as well as two shootings Thursday morning targeting police officials. Police are in the process of tracking down Dorner, who is apparently on a killing rampage aimed at law enforcement, and the shootings today occurred when police came across vehicles similar to that of the suspect.

The first officer-involved shooting happened at about 5:20 a.m. in the 19500 block of Redbeam Avenue in Torrance, according to the L.A. Times. Two women delivering newspapers in a truck were struck by gunfire by L.A. police detectives from the Hollywood division. One woman was shot in the hand and the other in the back, Jesse Escochea, who captured video of the victims being treated, told the Times. Both victims were transported to a hospital.

The Times describes the crime scene: "After the shooting, the blue pickup was riddled with bullet holes and what appeared to be newspapers lay in the street alongside."

The second incident occurred at Flagler Lane and Beryl Street about 5:45 a.m. and involved Torrance police. No injuries were reported.

28. Old news (see above and see some other threads). Those women were elderly Asian women

 

and their truck was a Toyota Tacoma, not a Nissan Titan. Truck was shot in the back. Cops just shot like mad and didn't bother to check who was in the truck or even if it was the right make.

47. It was a real question.

 

Sorry if you took it the wrong way. No one is saying that this guy wasn't an ex-cop. Of course, he was still low level when he was fired. That was the point actually. He was a low level whistleblower with no protection up against a corrupt PD. If Dorner's version of events has any veracity, he was railroaded in hearings (which are secret and not available to the public) and trashed as a "bully". The irony is that he was charging his superior with illegally assaulting a suspect. Dorner was the one who was fired.

22. Yup. When a cop is shot, all bets are off.

Tensions are running very high for other cops, and strange things tend to happen. If you hear that a car like yours is being looked for in such a situation, just stay off the streets altogether. It can be very dangerous.

Even when a police officer dies in a traffic accident, the investigation will completely shut down whatever highway it happened on for hours and hours. I remember being caught in one of those shut-downs near San Diego a number of years back. I didn't move an inch for over five hours.

It's a reaction that is very common when a police officer dies. Best to let it play itself out.

34. They are right to be scared.

After reading the shooter's manifesto, if I were one of the people named in it, I would be leaving town and taking my family with me. It's clear that he has a plan and intends to carry it out. There's no defense against that if the person with the plan is trained and intelligent. None at all.

This could end quickly, or it could be a nightmare for a long time. I have no idea which way it will go, but it's not a good situation at all. People who look like the shooter or drive a car like the shooter need to be extra careful right now. I'm not concerned about the shooter, really. He'll have to take care of himself or turn himself in. They'll catch him eventually.
