As Los Angeles, California – and much of the nation – awaits the most-recent updates surrounding an ongoing manhunt for a former police and naval office, this evening Piers Morgan invited Bill Bratton to share his unique insight and perspective.
A former New York City Police Commisioner, and the former chief of police in Los Angeles – where he interacted with accused gunman Chris Dorner – Bratton offered some information as to the possible current location of the man suspected of killing three people, including one cop:
"He's apparently now up in the Bear Mountain area, which is a very popular area in California for skiing," explained Bratton. "It's very high mountains, very rugged mountains, so if he's up in that area, incredibly difficult terrain to try and explore, and search. At the same time, he may have left his truck there, which was just reported, and burned. But as to, is he still there, or has he moved on, that's unknown at this time."
Speaking directly to anyone who may come across the man he described as being "trained" and "well-armed," Bratton offered clear and cautious guidance:
"If you see this individual – and he is a very distinctive looking individual, huge, he's physically a huge individual – report it to the police. Give him no indication that you're aware of him. Don't try to interrupt or interfere with any of his activities. He is an incredibly dangerous individual. His police skills make him even more so. You've referenced the significant weapons that he has access to. And that's a pretty significant arsenal in the hands of a trained individual such as he is."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then follow CNN – on television and online – for the very latest updates as to the whereabouts of Dorner, and the status of the manhunt that's captured the country's attention.
