Los Angeles — A former Los Angeles cop who had allegedly warned he would target law enforcement in retribution for being fired is now suspected of shooting three officers early Thursday, killing one, authorities said.

The shootings — which come a day after Irvine, California, police named Christopher Jordan Dorner as the suspect in a double slaying there Sunday — sparked a huge manhunt in Southern California.

The California Highway Patrol issued an alert Thursday morning urging officers in several Southern California counties to be on the lookout for the onetime officer and Navy lieutenant.

Dorner, 33, is suspected of slightly wounding a Los Angeles police officer in Corona, California, early Thursday as the officer was exiting the freeway in that Riverside County town, according to Los Angeles police.
