Cincinnati police chief says fugitive LAPD officer Christopher Dorner worked for him

CINCINNATI - Cincinnati's police chief says a fugitive former Los Angeles police officer suspected in three California killings previously worked for him.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Police Chief James Craig says he was an area commander of the Los Angeles station where 33-year-old Christopher Dorner was last assigned. Dorner is suspected of killing a former LAPD police captain's daughter, her fiance and a police officer.

Police say Dorner vowed revenge against those in the LAPD responsible for his 2008 firing and their families. Dorner was fired when a department board determined he falsely claimed another officer kicked a suspect.

Craig told the newspaper neither he nor his family members are on Dorner's alleged "hit list" that authorities shared with Craig.

A police spokeswoman said Craig wasn't immediately available for comment Tuesday.
