Dorner, 33, threatened "unconventional and asymmetrical warfare" against police in an manifesto posted on his Facebook page. The former U.S. Navy reservist, was fired in 2008 for allegedly making false statements about his training officer. 

In his manifesto, Dorner named Randy Quan, father of the Cal State Fullerton assistant basketball coach who was found dead Sunday along with her fiance, Keith Lawrence. Quan, a retired L.A. police captain, was part the review process that led to Dorner's firing.

Quan, 28, and Lawrence, 27, had recently become engaged and moved into the condominium complex near Concordia University, where they had played basketball and received their degrees, authorities said. Lawrence was a campus officer at USC.

Police are searching for Dorner, described as being 6 feet tall, about 270 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He may be driving a blue, 2005 Nissan Titan pickup truck (Calif. license plate 7XO3191), and his last known address was in La Palma, Calif.
