Fugitive ex-cop eludes snow-swept mountain manhunt

A police officer protects the scene, where two Riverside Police officers were shot while in their car (C), in the early morning in Riverside, California February 7, 2013. Authorities in California launched a manhunt on Thursday for a fired Los Angeles policeman who threatened "warfare" on cops and was suspected in a string of shootings that killed three people, one of them a police officer, and wounded two others. Former officer Christopher Dorner, 33, a U.S. Navy reservist who posted an online manifesto of his grievances, was suspected in an ambush shooting of two police officers in Riverside, 60 miles (100 km) east of Los Angeles, early on Thursday, killing one and critically wounding the other, police said.
