As the search continues in California for an ex-policeman suspected of three murders, a $1 million (748,000 euros) reward has been offered for information leading to his arrest.

Christopher Dorner has been on the run for a week following the killings. He has vowed to take revenge on colleagues after his dismissal from the force.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said: “We will not tolerate anyone undermining the security, the tranquillity of our neighbourhoods and our communities. We will not tolerate this reign of terror that has robbed us of the peace of mind that residents of southern California deserve.”

The police manhunt is focusing on the Big Bear Lake region, some 130 kilometres east of Los Angeles after the suspect’s burned-out vehicle was found near a ski area there.

Dorner’s victims include the daughter of a retired LAPD captain who represented him at a disciplinary hearing. Around 50 families – many of them with connections to the police department – have been offered protection.
