Police said Wednesday night they are looking for a former Los Angeles police officer suspected in the shooting deaths of Monica Quan, 28, an assistant women’s basketball coach at Cal State Fullerton, and her fiance, Keith Lawrence, 27, a public safety officer at USC. Police said the suspect is armed and dangerous.
Former LAPD officer and U.S. Navy reservist Christopher Dorner is a suspect in the killings of Quan and Lawrence, who were found shot to death in their car at a parking structure Sunday night, Irvine, Calif., police chief David L. Maggard said.
Maggard said Dorner, who was an LAPD officer until his dismissal in 2009, implicated himself in the killings with a multi-page manifesto he wrote that was obtained by police.
Police do not know Dorner’s whereabouts, but his last address was in La Palma, Calif., and they are seeking the public’s help in finding him, the chief said.
Dorner is expected to be armed and dangerous, and Maggard encouraged anyone who sees him to immediately call 911. Police said he may be driving a blue, 2005 Nissan Titan pickup truck.
