4. SOUNDBITE: Chief Charlie Beck / Los Angeles Police Department

"The City mourns the deaths of Monica Quan, Keith Lawrence and our great Riverside police officer. I also feel great sadness for the injuries suffered by my officer, the second Riverside officer and the two uninvolved citizens in Torrance."


Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck says the fugitive ex-police officer wanted in three murders has multiple weapons including an assault rifle.

Beck also says more than 40 protection details have been assigned to possible targets of fired officer Christopher Dorner.

Beck says the massive manhunt for Dorner may be the largest in the department's history.

Dorner is suspected of murdering a couple last weekend, killing one Riverside officer and wounding another early Thursday, and wounding an LAPD officer a short time earlier.
