(Newser) – Police have launched a massive manhunt for an ex-cop who promised in a Facebook post to "bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty." Christopher Jordan Dorner, 33, is suspected of killing a couple in a parking lot this weekend, police announced yesterday. This morning he allegedly shot three cops, one fatally, in a pair of shootouts. In one, officers were chasing Dorner when he got out of his car and fired a rifle-like weapon at them, KTLA reports. In the other, he allegedly attacked two officers on routine patrol.

On Sunday, Dorner allegedly killed Cal State Fullerton assistant basketball coach Monica Quan and her fiancé. Quan was the daughter of Randy Quan, who represented Dorner in a 2009 disciplinary review that ended in Dorner's dismissal, the LA Times explains. In a long Facebook post, Dorner accused Quan of representing him poorly. "I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I'm terminating yours," he said. He described his war on the department as "a necessary evil that I do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the LAPD and reclaim my name." In their hunt for Dorner, LA police have shot two people by mistake.
