Reports: Police providing extra security at Grammys because of Dorner

A report in the New York Daily News said officials are worried about Christopher Dorner targeting security detail at the Grammy Awards.

Police are worried alleged cop-killer Christopher Dorner may target the security detail at the Grammy’s Sunday, according to the New York Daily News.

Reuters reported that a Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson said extra security would be provided for the Grammys, but no reason was given.

The newspaper reported that a line in Dorner's so-called manifesto has some officials worried about the award show in Los Angeles.

"I assume you that Incident Command Posts will be target-rich environments," the manifesto says.

According to the News, a former LAPD bureau chief, John Miller of CBS, raised the concern on "This Morning" Sunday. The News reported that Miller believes the police detail at the Grammy’s may be one of Dorner's targets.

An LAPD spokesman also said that police would be providing extra security for the Grammy Awards ceremony.


Earlier Sunday, Los Angeles authorities offered a $1 million reward for information leading to the arrest of Dorner.

Dorner, a former Los Angeles police officer, is suspected in three killings, including one officer.

Authorities are still searching for the fugitive. Thursday, they found his burned pickup truck near the resort town of Big Bear, Calif.

Sunday, police were investigating a taunting phone call to the father of one of Dorner's victims that may have been made by Dorner himself.

The hunt for Dorner stretched into its fourth day Sunday, with SWAT teams, air support and bloodhounds fanning out to search. Dorner has vowed revenge against several former colleagues within the LAPD.
