LOS ANGELES (AP) Police east of Los Angeles in Riverside say two officers were ambushed overnight and the suspect is a former LAPD cop who's still on the loose.
Riverside Lt. Guy Toussaint says the officers were stopped at a red light while on routine patrol around 1:30 a.m. Thursday when someone shot them.
One of the officers was killed and the other was critically wounded.
Toussaint says investigators believe the shooter was former LA police officer Christopher Dorner, who's also the main suspect in the weekend killing of a couple whose bodies were found in Irvine.
Police say Dorner implicated himself in the killings in a "manifesto" that included threats against several people, including members of the LAPD.
Toussaint says police don't where Dorner is but think he left the area.
