    Timeline of Events:
    • Sunday, Feb. 3: Monica Quan, 28, and Keith Lawrence, 27, are found shot to death in their car at an Irvine, Calif. parking structure. Quan, an assistant women's basketball coach at California State University, Fullerton, was the daughter of a former Los Angeles police captain who represented Dorner in disciplinary hearings that resulted in his dismissal.
    • Monday, Feb. 4: Some of Dorner's belongings are found in a trash bin in the San Diego-area community of National City, Calif.
    • Wednesday, Feb. 6: Irvine police announce they are looking for Dorner as a suspect in the killings of Quan and Lawrence. They describe him as armed and dangerous. Police say he implicated himself in the killings in a manifesto posted on Facebook. At about 10:30 p.m., a man matching Dorner's description tries to steal a 47-foot boat from a San Diego marina but the engine won't start. An 81-year-old man on the boat is tied up but not hurt.
    • Thursday, Feb. 7: At around 1:30 a.m. in the Riverside County community of Corona, Calif., two LAPD officers assigned to protect a person named in the manifesto chase a vehicle they believe is Dorner's. During a shootout, one officer is grazed in the forehead. The gunman flees. A short time later, a gunman believed to be Dorner ambushes two Riverside police officers who had stopped at a red light during a routine patrol. One officer is killed and the other critically injured.
    • Around 2:30 a.m., a passer-by finds a wallet with law enforcement badge and a picture ID of Dorner on a street near San Diego International Airport.
    • Three hours later, LAPD officers guarding a manifesto target in the Los Angeles suburb of Torrance, Calif., open fire on a truck they mistakenly believe to be Dorner's. Two women are wounded. A short time later, Torrance police are involved in a second shooting involving a different truck they also mistake for Dorner's. Nobody is hurt.

    LOS ANGELES, CA (CBS) -- A manhunt is underway in the Los Angeles area for a former police officer suspected of shooting three police officers overnight. He is also a suspect in a double-murder that happened earlier this week.

    Police helicopters are flying over the communities of Riverside, and Corona, an hour's drive from Los Angeles. Three police officers were shot early today. One of them died. Investigators say the suspect is a former LAPD officer, and Navy Reservist named Christopher Dorner who posted an online manifesto threatening police officials and their families. Irvine Police Chief David Maggard says, "Dorner's whereabouts are currently unknown and we are asking for the public's help in finding him. We have strong cause to believe Dorner is armed and dangerous."

    Dorner is also suspected of shooting and killing a college basketball coach, and her fiancée in a parking garage Sunday night. The father of the coach, Monica Quan, represented Dorner in front of a disciplinary board when Dorner was dismissed from the LAPD for making false statements. Police say he is out for revenge.

    The Los Angeles police department has placed security at the homes of police officers named in Dorner's manifesto.

    Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck ays more than 40 protection details have been assigned to possible targets of fired officer Christopher Dorner. Beck says the massive manhunt for Dorner may be the largest in the department's history.
