Chief Beck: 1,000 Officers Searching For Dorner

LOS ANGELES (KTLA) – Police Chief Charlie Beck said at a news conference Monday that he has “a thousand officers” looking for Christopher Dorner and protecting the homes of threatened LAPD officers.

Dorner, suspected of fatally shooting three people and wounding two others, is still evading a massive manhunt.

A million dollars is now being offered for the tip that finds Dorner.

Last night, after a mistaken-identity sighting in Northridge, A Lowe’s Home Improvement store was evacuated, then cleared.

Also yesterday, the search around Dorner’s burned-out SUV by hundreds of SWAT officers was further scaled back, after they found no signs of Dorner.

Investigators have received at least 600 tips about Dorner, officials said Monday.
