Holy Angels School in Arcadia, which has a connection to the fired LAPD officer accused in the killing of two people in Irvine and a police officer in Riverside, remained closed for the second day today as a precaution while authorities search for the suspect.
“They have suspended classes for the day,” said Arcadia police Sgt. Stephen Fallavollita.
The school had been closed on Monday.
The school is part of Holy Angels Parish, which is led by the Rev.Michael Evans, brother of a Los Angeles police sergeant who was involved in a 2007 incident mentioned in an online manifesto attributed to Christopher Dorner, the Los Angeles Times reported.
In a letter sent Friday and read aloud at Sunday Mass, Michael Evans said he would be “away for a few days because a member of my family was named in the manifesto of Christopher Dorner.”
In the July 28, 2007, incident, Dorner and his training officer, Teresa Evans, responded to a call about a man causing a disturbance at a San Pedro hotel, and Evans used a Taser to subdue the man.
Two leeks later, Dorner told a sergeant that Teresa Evans had kicked the man, and that she had told Dorner not to include the kicks in his report, The Times reported.
But Evans denied kicking the man, and Dorner’s disciplinary panel heard from several witnesses who testified that they did not see her kick the man.
The panel found that the man did not have injuries consistent with having been kicked, and there was no evidence on his clothes of his having been kicked.
