RIVERSIDE (CBSLA.com) Authorities confirm that a burned-out truck matching the description of a getaway vehicle owned by triple-murder suspect Christopher Dorner was found in the San Bernardino mountains Thursday.
Police were searching Thursday for 33-year-old Dorner, a former Los Angeles Police Department officer, after he was named a suspect Wednesday night in a double homicide in Irvine.
Authorities said the officers were stopped at a red light while on routine patrol around 1:35 a.m. Thursday when someone shot them.
Two of our officers were involved in a shooting at the intersection of Arlington and Magnolia. Both officers were shot and transported to a local hospital. One was pronounced dead, the other one is currently in surgery and is in critical condition, Officer Bryan Galbreath told KNX 1070.

Ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner -- the accused killer at the center of a citywide manhunt -- posted a rambling message to various celebrities ... including Tim Tebow ... before embarking on his murderous rampage.
The message is part of an "uncensored manifesto" that law enforcement confirms to TMZ was posted to the Internet by Dorner. Besides various threats to police officers and their families ... Dorner --who's now accused of killing 3 people including a cop -- also blogs goodbye messages to his favorite stars, as if he's planning on dying.
His message to Tim Tebow reads:
Tebow, I really wanted to see you take charge of an offense again and the game. You are not a good QB by todays standards, but you are a great football player who knows how to lead a team and WIN. You will be Tebowing when you reach your next team. I have faith in you. Get out of that circus they call the Jets and away from the reality TV star, Rex Ryan, and Mark Rapist Sanchez.
He also included a note to "Inglourious Basterds" star Christoph Waltz:
Christopher Walz, you impressed me in Inglorious Basterds. After viewing Django Unchained, I was sold. I have come to the conclusion that you are well on your way to becoming one of the greats if not already and show glimpses of Daniel Day Lewis and Morgan Freeman-esque type qualities of greatness. Trust me when I say that you will be one of the greatest ever.
Super chef Anthony Bourdain:
Anthony Bourdain, youre a modern renaissance man who epitomizes the saying too cool for school.
"Curb Your Enthusiasm" star Larry David:
Larry David, I agree. 72-82 degrees is way to hot in a residence. 68 , degrees is perfect.
Larry David, Kevin Hart, the late Patrice Oneal, Lisa Lampanelli, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Louis CK, Dave Chapelle, Jon Stewart, Wanda Sykes, Dennis Miller, and Jeff Ross are pure geniuses.
Ellen Degeneres, continue your excellent contribution to entertaining America and bringing the human factor to entertainment. You changed the perception of your gay community and how we as Americans view the LGBT community. I congratulate you on your success and opening my eyes as a young adult, and my generation to the fact that you are know different from us other than who you choose to love. Oh, and you Prop 8 supporters, why the f*ck do you care who your neighbor marries. Hypocritical pieces of sh*t.
Charlie Sheen, youre effin awesome.
He continues with the following messages ...
"Jennifer Beals, Serena Williams, Grae Drake, Lisa Nicole-Carson, Diana Taurasi, Nbushe Wright, Brenda Villa, Kate Winslet, Ashley Graham, Erika Christensen, Gabrielle Union, Isabella Soprano, Zain Verjee, Tamron Hall, Gina Carano, America Ferrara, Giana Michaels, Nene, Natalie Portman, Queen Latifah, Michelle Rodriguez, Anjelah Johnson, Kelly Clarkson, Nora Jones, Laura Prepon, Margaret Cho, and Rutina Wesley, you are THE MOST beautiful women on this planet, period. Never settle, professionally or personally."
Dave Brubecks Take Five is the greatest piece of music ever, period. Hanz Zimmer, William Bell, Eric Clapton, BB King, Bob Marley, Sam Cooke, Metallica, Rob Zombie, Nora Jones, Marvin Gaye, Jay-Z, and the King (Louis Armstrong) are musical prodigies.
Jeffrey Toobin and David Gergen, you are political geniuses and modern scholars. Hopefully Toobin is nominated for the Supreme Court and implements some damn common sense and reasoning instead of partisan bickering. But in true Toobin fashion, we all know he would not accept the nomination.
John and Ken from KFI, never mute your facts and personal opinions. You are one of the few media personalities who speak the truth, even when the truth is not popular. I will miss listening to your discussions.
Dorner also trashed some of his least favorite people, including Cardinal Mahony and the Westboro Baptist Church:
Cardinal Mahoney, you are in essence a predator yourself as you enabled your subordinates to molest multiple children in the church over many decades. May you die a long and slow painful death.
Westboro Baptist Church, may you all burn slowly in a fire, not from smoke inhalation, but from the flames and only the flames.
This guy is all over the place.
He is a nut.
He trashes Lesbian cops then praises LBGT’s
He is NOT Coherent.
He may have been wronged but he is crazy.
Why did he shoot that Basketball coach?
So the solution is to go ballistic?
The guy is a nut.
Including Margaret Cho as one of the most beautiful women in the world is proof this guy is insane.
Good way for someone to get themselves killed. They already shot two women for delivering newspapers.
aren’t there weight requirements in the service?...this guy is as big as a house....
Listened to John and Ken today and they never mentioned being on the manifesto. Conway hasn’t mentioned it either on tonight’s show.
Oh yeah, that's right. Or, someone might end up getting someone else killed. Lots of gasoline around. Just needs a match. Everyone needs to be real careful.
He is a typical Obama voter with a grievance.
He struck pretty close to home today and yesterday. And I wonder at the unusual helo activity around Pt. Loma tonight. He could try another boat jacking..if he got a new vehicle in Big Bear.
Fortunately the women didn’t have a cocker spaniel in the vehicle with them, or they’d probably have been killed.
It would probably invite more NUT Mail.
That one caught my eye too! She is a vile pig...
Let’s stipulate that he is a whackjob, and now a deadly criminal who MUST be caught or stopped.
That being said, I read the stuff he wrote that has since been redacted from the net. In a nutshell (and I know this may be a little bit crazy sounding), he may have been a little bit too much of a “Dudley Do-Right” in calling out a couple of fellow officers on things like excessive use of force and other similar things. Because he crossed the blue line and ratted on fellow officers - being a whistleblower is what he saw it as - he says he was retaliated against.
NOW deciding that he needed to shoot people to get even for their retaliation is NOT right.
But at the same time, it is not great stretch to believe that his statements concerning police corruption and cover-ups are accurate.
Look at the history of this problem in many law enforcement organizations.
If his complaints indeed are true, and had been taken seriously and not covered up, that would have been best.
But OTOH, they were covered up, he was retaliated against for being a whistle-blower and too straight-arrow, and lost his job.
He should have taken it as water under the bridge, let it go, and moved on.
Many folks have such incidents in their career. Tens of millions, I would hazard to guess, in their lifetime have an unfair action taken against them at work or elsewhere at least once in their life/career.
Welcome to the real world.
Almost everyone gets mad but moves on, and over time lets it go.
A tenth of a fraction, of a fraction of a percent, decide to get even in some way. NOT the way to go, but there it is...
He is wrong. He has murdered police officers, but even if they were civilians, still it is murder. He is doomed.
But also his accusations should be re-investigated by an independent party. I doubt this will happen.
I'm not saying he should go kill people - just that the manifesto posted originally (see link above) is different now in that the original one does not mention Clinton, Bush, Obama, Ellen, Charlie Sheen, Tebow... This BS has been added and therefore pissed off ex-cop’s exit plan had been hijacked by the media and guess why?
At the link, once it opens, click on the tiny picture and it will expand.
Good and truthful post.
As in added postings from Dorner, or added as in made up?
Are you not aware that the LA-area cops have already shot up two different vehicles in one day, in incidents in which the people in the vehicles were completely innocent, and no guns and no fireworks were involved?
Maybe you're not following the news. These cops are on a hair trigger, and they are heavily armed and pretty much prepared to shoot down even innocent civilians. I think your suggestion that someone might set off fireworks into that powder keg might be something you might want to think a bit more about.
Christopher Dorner = Mark Essex.
The guy is unhinged, as are lots of his ex co workers.
