BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (February 10, 2013)--SWAT teams with air support and bloodhounds fanned out for the fourth day Sunday in snow-covered Southern California mountains, searching for a former Los Angeles police officer suspected in three killings.
Authorities planned a 1 p.m. news conference Sunday in Los Angeles to announce a reward for information leading to the arrest of Christopher Dorner, 33, who has vowed revenge against several former LAPD colleagues whom he blames for ending his career.
LA police Chief Charlie Beck has ordered a review of the 2007 disciplinary case that led to the fugitive's dismissal.
A scaled-back search party using heat-seeking helicopters hunted for Dorner in the San Bernardino mountains, where his burned-out pickup truck was discovered Thursday.
The killings and threats that Dorner allegedly made in an online rant have led police to provide protection to 50 families.
