NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - A southern Nevada pawn gun dealer is auctioning a handgun once owned by a rogue former LAPD officer who killed four people before fatally shooting himself after a manhunt in February.

George Bramlett at Bargain Pawn in North Las Vegas thinks the .38 Special that Christopher Dorner sold him in January might fetch a couple of thousand dollars.

He tells The Associated Press he wants to donate the money to the families of two California police officers Dorner killed.

But administrators handling funds for San Bernardino County Sheriff Deputy Jeremiah MacKay and Riverside police Officer Michael Crain say the families don't want the money.

Sgt. Brian Smith calls the offer "morbid."

Already, the bidding is close to $500 for a weapon Bramlett says is probably worth $250 to $300.
