Two Los Angeles County supervisors will ask their colleagues to approve a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of accused cop-killer Christopher Jordan Dorner, a spokesman said today.
Supervisors Mike Antonovich and Mark Ridley-Thomas agreed to make the request at the next Board of Supervisors meeting, on Tuesday, Antonovich’s spokesman told City News Service.
Dorner, a former Los Angeles policeman, is believed to have shot two Riverside police officers on Thursday, killing one of them. he is also suspected of slaying a former policeman’s daughter, and her fiancee, last weekend in Irvine.
Antonovich’s spokesman, Tony Bell, said the county reward is independent of a reward offer in the works from Los Angeles, Irvine and Riverside police. Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Riverside mayor Rusty Choi and Irvine mayor Steven Choi planned a news conference at LA police headquarters at 1 p.m. today to announce their reward.
