Fox News alert really tell you about this intense manhunt under way.
Out in California right now former LAPD officer is suspected.
In a series of deadly shootings we've got a picture of him 33 year old Christopher Jordan -- and her.
Police say he shot three police officers.
Killing one of them.
He's also wanted for two other murders this week alone in the shooting death of a 28 year old woman Monica -- she's the daughter of a retired.
LAPD -- her fiance who was with -- also shot and killed.
Here is a sergeant releasing new details on the suspect just a little while ago.
How -- is this situation pitched extremely tense.
Obviously we call -- a manhunt we are looking at all avenues.
To identify where he may be where he might be going and and when we do that we we approach it cautiously because of the propensity he has already shown.
-- -- as a former NYPD homicide detective in this is an.
Awful awful story -- and it has the potential to get a lot worse doesn't -- you know Rick this is where most desperate things you got a guy out there.
Who shot three -- sources killed 12 of the people who is this thing's gonna and in a very ugly way.
You know did that manifest those out there where he described why he killed those other two people what he's trying to do is trying to kill cops.
I mean these offices that have really have to protect other offices have to protect the people.
And again this person has shown that he's ready to kill anybody.
So when they come up on them these offices have to be able to shoot their guns and do what they have to do because this guy doesn't look like he's gonna go down.
And surrender we hope that he surrenders and and can -- from the surrender but I really don't believe this could be ending in a happy way.
And I hope I'm wrong.
No -- you I don't think you're you're wrong at all -- Are you mention the manifesto.
And in it it's reported that he said that he was promising to bring unconventional.
And a symmetrical warfare.
To those in LAPD uniform whether all on.
Or off duty.
And this is a former military guy too as well what do you make of the manifesto.
Well you know the manifest already has mentioned about why he killed the other people do with the relatives of the judge.
-- I mean you lawyer and a court case now the problem here is you've got -- offices that have to be Catholic.
He come up on a radio caught in on suspect that we just showed -- if this is what his intentions are going to be all those offices out there in uniform at a beautiful you must.
Be able to what look around have an omni presence this -- a big guys 270 -- Six full want he's a big man and these offices that you have to really be have an omni presence at all to find good -- -- libel did you shoot at.
Any officer in uniform or without uniforms.
I mean this is a very very serious thing that's occurring.
I think it's probably one of the most serious thing that can happen -- -- not going to go away easily and if these cops come up -- they have to do what -- have to do don't hesitate could this -- I'll end up killing you like he killed those other -- Also this guy this guy was on the force in Los Angeles and he falsely accused -- superior officer.
Of beating a suspect.
He made up the story.
And then had to go in front of this hearing and it was his attorney his attorney's daughter.
He lost his job as a result of that hearing so he went after.
His attorneys daughter -- that and and that woman who's a basketball coach.
And her fiance were the first two victims.
In all of this these revenge killings.
-- how are they different from other types of -- Slowly he like -- like I said he has this manifesto what he's described what he why he did it.
Now you have a desperate men do desperate things.
And now he's out there and just showed you would that shootout would you police office is -- we killed one and shot three of them.
He doesn't care about anything anymore.
And now it's just for him to make and get I hate to say it he's gonna try to get as much body cap as he can and he's offices out there.
Remember just omnipresent watch -- this guy can't -- too long.
Everybody's on top -- -- and they got to hunt them down his fifth is awful -- he's gonna hurt more people and possibly kill more people.
Unless they take him out he's not gonna go down I don't think surrendering I think he's gonna go down in -- blaze of glory because she's not gonna wanna be captured because he's shown that effectively was -- to shoot these other police offices that had nothing to do with his manifesto or nothing to do with him being fired.
-- -- as a former homicide detective in the wire -- -- thanks am thank you Rick.
