Los Angeles police say an ex-LA cop sought for two weekend killings is a suspect in an overnight shooting in nearby Riverside that killed one officer and critically wounded another.

The shooting happened early this morning in the Los Angeles suburb of Corona. The wounded officer is in surgery. A third officer suffered a graze wound.

Former Los Angeles police officer Christopher Jordan Dorner is the suspect in the weekend killing of a couple found shot to death.

Police say Dorner implicated himself in the killings in a "manifesto" that included threats against several people, including members of the LAPD.

Los Angeles police say two Newton station officers on security duty were also involved in a shooting overnight, but they weren't hurt.
