DEVELOPING: Ex-LAPD officer sought in three murders; potential targets under protection

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck says the fugitive ex-police officer wanted in three murders has multiple weapons including an assault rifle.

Beck also says more than 40 protection details have been assigned to possible targets of fired officer Christopher Dorner.

Beck says the massive manhunt for Dorner may be the largest in the department's history.

Dorner is suspected of murdering a couple last weekend, killing one Riverside officer and wounding another early Thursday, and wounding an LAPD officer a short time earlier.

Los Angeles police also say officers guarding a target in an ex-officer's manifesto shot and wounded multiple people in Torrance who were in a pickup.

LA police Lt. Andrew Neiman says the officers were deployed in response to Christopher Dorner's written threats to department officials in a rambling 14-page manifesto.

Police did not say how seriously the people in Torrance were injured.
