Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, a disgruntled former officer with the Los Angeles police department, is suspected of shooting three police officers Thursday morning and murdering a couple in Irvine earlier this week.
Gawker has a roundup of the story here.
The LAPD have accidentally shot two people in the process of pursuing Dorner.
And, in tangentially related news: seven deputies who are members of a secret clique within the LA Sheriff's Department will be fired. Members were involved in an elite squad that operated in areas where gang violence is high, and received tattoos for each shooting of a gang member.
