A camp ranger carjacked by Christopher Dorner has sued after failing to get a $1 million reward offered for information that tracked down the killer.

The Orange County Register says Richard Heltebrake has sued Irvine and several public agencies that contributed reward money. He also sued the four people who were awarded the money.

Irvine officials declined to comment.

Dorner, a fired Los Angeles policeman, killed four people in a revenge rampage before he was cornered in February. He shot himself in a Big Bear cabin.

Heltebrake called 911 after he was hijacked by Dorner that day. However, authorities say they’d already spotted Dorner. A panel of retired judges awarded the $1 million reward to other people.

A judge last week refused Heltebrake’s request to stall the payout.
