Hunt for ex-cop goes on amid snowstorm; no weapons found in Vegas home
BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) — A Los Angeles police official says investigators are keeping all options open in the manhunt for the former LAPD officer suspected of three murders.
Searchers are combing a snowy mountain east of Los Angeles where Christopher Dorner’s truck was found Thursday, but Deputy Chief Kirk Albanese says it’s not known if he’s on foot either on or off the mountain.
Albanese says a package sent by Dorner to CNN’s Anderson Cooper is being reviewed by the LAPD, and that another media source may have been similarly contacted.
The LAPD fired Dorner in 2008. Albanese says it’s not known why the violence is occurring now.
Dorner is believed to have multiple weapons including an assault rifle. Albanese says bullets from such a weapon can penetrate body armor.
FBI: No weapons found in ex-LA cop’s Vegas home
Authorities say no weapons were found in a search of Dorner’s Las Vegas home.
FBI Agent Patrick Turner said Friday that other items found after SWAT teams served a warrant Thursday at the two-story home about nine miles southwest of the Las Vegas Strip will be used to help in the manhunt.
