Dorner manhunt leads LAPD to Lowe's store in Northridge

The manhunt for Christopher Dorner led LAPD SWAT officers to a Northridge Lowe's home improvement store after people reported seeing someone who resembled the fugitive former police officer there.

LAPD swarmed the store off Nordhoff Street about 5 p.m. Customers were escorted out of the store as police looked for any signs of Dorner.

LAPD stressed that it was an unconfirmed sighting.

[Updated 7:27 p.m.: A law enforcement source said the call to the Lowe's might have been related to a couple fighting outside the store].

There have been several reports similar to this one in recent days that didn't pan out.

When I heard today I just started laughing..really? Does anyone think that Dorner would say to himself “Hey I gotta go pick up something at Lowes” yeah that’s where he would go..hey maybe next there will be a sighting of him at Home Depot or Dennys

If I were a bulky bald black fellow in SoCal, I'd call my boss and tell him that I think I'd need to work from home for at least a week, or take a short term leave of absence.

If I were the boss of a bulky bald black fellow in SoCal, I wouldn't quarrel about it and instead find someone to cover his work for a week.

I hope no one got shot this time.

These clowns even went to a dentist office by mistake. And yes, I passed by that Lowe’s a week ago in Northridge and there aren’t a lot of black dudes in Northridge, trust me.

That’s the only way they can get the cops there ~ Claim that Dohnner is there
Obviously the former bribes of free donuts and coffee aren’t working !

Local LEOs have been comparing notes for several hours now at the KittenKat Club located nearby on the rumoured chance he might reappear.

And that is exactly how everyone see's dorner - a bulky bald black fellow. In fact, some posts that I have read on other sites perceive him as a Giant of a man. Although in the photo taken at the ATM, he still had a stocky look to him. Under the stress that he must be under by staying in the shadows (wherever that is), it is very likely that he is losing quite a bit of weight. Being around 6'0" tall, it wouldn't take long for him to trim down to the size of his Navy photo. Looks to be under 200 lbs there. My point is that if not found soon, the Giant of a man they are looking for could very soon become the Average guy and blend in much more easily. Just a thought - I am sure this has been considered by LAPD and others. As far as the bald part - that is a no brainer. Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
