LOS ANGELES (AP) - The city of Riverside now says it's pulling its pledge of $100,000 toward the $1 million reward offered during the manhunt for rogue ex-Los Angeles cop Christopher Dorner.
City spokeswoman Cindie Perry told the Riverside Press-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/11Fgayd ) Monday that the City Council resolution said the money was for information leading to Dorner's arrest and conviction, and neither condition was met.
A Riverside police officer was among four people killed by Dorner before he died in an apparent suicide during a standoff with authorities.
The city's move comes a day after a peace officers union president told the Los Angeles Times that his organization was placing its pledge on hold, and said other donors had expressed similar misgivings.
LA's mayor and police chief have said they want to see the reward paid.
