A former LAPD officer who was terminated in 2009 for allegedly making false statements about a superior officer is the main suspect in three overnight shootings in Corona and Riverside. The shootings have left one officer dead, and 33-year-old Christopher Dorner was already a suspect in the murder of a couple in Irvine, CA last Sunday. Authorities believe Dorner is out for revenge against everyone involved with his firing.
Cal State Fullerton assistant basketball coach Monica Quan and fiance Keith Lawrence were killed Sunday. Quan is the daughter of retired LAPD captain Randy Quan, who represented Dorner in the hearing that resulted in his firing. Dorner posted a long note on Facebook where he blames Quan for "conspiring" against him, and even says "I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I'm terminating yours."
Dorner also threatened officers "in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty," calling his moves a "necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake...for substantial change to occur within the LAPD and reclaim my name."
Despite fulfilling his lifelong dream of becoming a cop, Dorner was removed from the force after an LAPD Board of Rights determined that he had made false statements against Sgt. Teresa Evans, who he accused of kicking a suspect.
