Christopher Dorner, 33, former Los Angeles Police officer, was fired from the LAPD in 2008 for making false statements. According to documents from a court of appeals hearing in October 2011, Dorner was fired after he made a complaint against his field training officer, Sergeant Teresa Evans.
Dorner said that in the course of an arrest, Sgt Evans kicked suspect Christopher Gettler, a schizophrenic with severe dementia. Richard Gettler, the schizophrenic man’s father, gave testimony that supported Dorner’s claim.
Dorner, a US Navy reservist, is wanted in the killings of Monica Quan and her fiancé, Keith Lawrence. They were found shot in their car at a parking structure at their condominium on Sunday night in Irvine, authorities said.

Ms. Quan’s father, a former LAPD captain who became a lawyer in retirement, represented Dorner in front of the Board of Rights, a tribunal that ruled against Dorner at the time of his dismissal in 2008, LAPD Captain William Hayes told The Associated Press.
Police launched a massive manhunt for the former LAPD officer suspected of killing the couple over the weekend and opening fire on four officers early Thursday, killing one and critically wounding another, authorities said.
Nevada authorities also joined the search for Dorner, who owns a house nine miles from the Las Vegas Strip, according to authorities and court records.
