CINCINNATI (AP) — Cincinnati's police chief says a fugitive former Los Angeles police officer suspected in three California killings previously worked for him.
The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/V2MtJ5 ) reports Police Chief James Craig says he was an area commander of the Los Angeles station where 33-year-old Christopher Dorner was last assigned. Dorner is suspected of killing a former LAPD police captain's daughter, her fiance and a police officer.
Police say Dorner vowed revenge against those in the LAPD responsible for his 2008 firing and their families. Dorner was fired when a department board determined he falsely claimed another officer kicked a suspect.
Craig told the newspaper neither he nor his family members are on Dorner's alleged "hit list" that authorities shared with Craig.
A police spokeswoman said Craig wasn't immediately available for comment Tuesday.
