LOS ANGELES (AP) — There is a heavier-than-usual police presence at the Grammy Awards because of a dangerous former Los Angeles police officer believed to have killed three people in a region-wide rampage this week.
Police Cmdr. Andy Smith says the always heavily guarded Grammys will see even more officers at Staples Center Sunday as the hunt for 33-year-old fugitive Christopher Dorner continues.
The search is focused in mountains 80 miles away, but police say Dorner could be anywhere, and most of the targets he threatened in an online manifesto have ties to the LAPD, which typically has a visible presence at the Grammys.
Scores of officers are outside Staples, others are stationed on a hotel roof across the street and Grammy participants' credentials are being checked constantly.
Dorner's manifesto mentions many celebrities, but makes no threats to entertainers.
