Christopher Dorner Grammys: Possible Attack Has LAPD On High Alert

Christopher Dorner, the former Los Angeles police officer that stands accused of a triple murder, is still at large tonight and the LAPD is on high alert for a possible attack on the Grammys. 

The mayor of Los Angeles, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, offered a $1 million reward for information that leads to the capture of Dorner. 

“We will not tolerate this reign of terror that has robbed us of the peace of mind that residents of Southern California deserve,” Villaraigosa said. “We will not tolerate this murderer remaining at large.”

Dorner is accused of killing the daughter of a retired LAPD officer and her boyfried, along with a Riverside police officer. Before he apparently became unhinged, Dorner penned a manifesto in which he wrote, "I assure you that Incident Command Posts will be target-rich environments.” Command posts refers to the mobile headquarters that cops set up at special events, like the Grammys.
