Pasadena Police are on "elevated high alert" as law enforcement agencies around the state search for an ex-LAPD officer accused of going on a killing spree.
Christopher Jordan Dorner, who was fired from the LAPD in 2009, allegedly killed two people in Irvine on Sunday and later fired at police officers in Riverside County early Thursday morning. One officer was killed in the shooting.
"Dorner’s behavior poses a significant risk to the public through his willingness to target police officers and innocent people," Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez said in a written statement. "Until he is apprehended, he will continue to pose a significant threat to any person he fells is a threat."
Dorner is described as a 33-year-old African American Male, 6-feet tall, and 270 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
"He was last seen driving a blue 2005 Nissan Titan pick-up with California license 7X03191," a Pasadena PD news release states.
