LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck says the review of ex-officer Christopher Dorner’s firing is under way, but it’s too early to comment on the re-examination.

Beck told a press conference Tuesday that he doesn’t discount the effect that Dorner’s manifesto has had on the reputation of the Police Department.

Dorner, who was black, claimed he was subjected to racism and was targeted for reporting misconduct. He died of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot during a mountain cabin siege that followed a spree of violence in which authorities say he killed four people and wounded three.

Beck says he hopes the $1 million reward offered during the manhunt will be paid. But he says it has to be done fairly, whether it goes to one individual or is split among several.
