A one million dollar reward is available to anyone with information leading to the capture of Christopher Dorner- a former Los Angeles cop wanted for murder.
Dorner is suspected of killing three people earlier this month.... a former police captain's daughter and her fiance, and another police officer.
Dorner was fired from the force in 2008 after a police inquiry found he had wrongly accused one of his superiors of mistreating a homeless person.
Last week he posted a manifesto on his Facebook page saying he was unfairly sacked and that he would target numerous police officers and their families with revenge.
Police have been looking for 33 year old Dorner in the snow-covered San Bernadino Mountains east of LA after police found his truck there.
LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (vee-yah-ry-GO-sah).
(SOUNDBITE)(English) LOS ANGELES MAYOR ANTONIO VILLARAIGOSA SAYING:
"We will not tolerate anyone undermining the security, the tranquility of our neighborhoods and our communities. We will not tolerate this reign of terror that has robbed us of the peace of mind that residents of southern California deserve."
Police officials said this is the largest sum ever offered in Southern California in a criminal investigation.
