Another backs out of Dorner reward

LOS ANGELES (AP) — An umbrella group for California police unions says it is pulling its contribution to a $1.2 million reward offered in the hunt for rogue ex-cop Christopher Dorner.

The president of the 64,000-member Peace Officers Research Association of California says the organization's board of directors voted Thursday to withdraw $50,000 from the huge amount collected from more than two dozen entities.

Ron Cottingham says the conditions for the reward to be issued — Dorner's arrest and conviction — don't apply.

The city of Riverside said earlier this week it cannot pay the $100,000 it offered because the arrest-and-conviction conditions weren't met.

Authorities say Dorner killed four people, including two police officers, before apparently killing himself last month.

A couple and a man who encountered Dorner have made claims for the reward.
