Lompoc police relieved Dorner manhunt over

Lompoc police are relieved that the manhunt for fugitive Christopher Dorner is over.

Dorner is the former Los Angeles police officer suspected of killing four people, including two officers. He is believed to have died in a burned mountain cabin Tuesday in Big Bear Lake after a standoff with police.

Lompoc Captain Don Deming previously worked at the LAPD. He was mentioned in Dorner's "manifesto" posted on Facebook as someone who could confirm Dorner was a good report writer before he was fired.

Dorner had also threatened in his posting to wage "unconventional warfare" on law enforcement officers and their families.

Lompoc police took precautions to protect Captain Deming and his family while Dorner was on the run.

Chief Larry Ralston said the past several days were stressful for Captain Deming and his family who were displaced while the manhunt for Doerner was underway.

Chief Ralston expects Captain Deming to be back to work on Friday.
