Here are some key events involving Christopher Dorner, the fired Los Angeles police officer suspected of killing at least three people including a police officer in Southern California and posting a manifesto on Facebook outlining plans to kill the families of those he felt wronged him:
Monica Quan, 28, and Keith Lawrence, 27, are found shot to death in their car at an Irvine 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.

Some of Dorner's belongings are found in a trash bin in the San Diego-area community of National City.
Friends, alumni and faculty have a candlelight vigil at Walnut High School on Monday night for Quan, a member of the school's Hall of Fame.

Dorner checks into a hotel near the Point Loma Navy base in San Diego.

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.
