LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles Police Department review has upheld the firing of Christopher Dorner, the rogue ex-officer who killed four people during a February rampage that ended with his death.
Police officials released the report Friday as part of next week's agenda for the Los Angeles Police Commission meeting.
The findings were first reported early this month by The Associated Press.
The review says Dorner fabricated allegations against fellow officers and the decision to fire him was sound.
In an online manifesto, Dorner claimed he had been wronged and vowed to wage war on the police force.
That led police Chief Charlie Beck to order the review even as Dorner was on the run.
The manhunt ended with his apparent suicide in a mountain cabin following a gunbattle with authorities.
