LOS ANGELES, Calif. -

Los Angeles police say officers guarding a target in an ex-officer's manifesto shot and wounded multiple people in Torrance who were in a pickup.

LA police Lt. Andrew Neiman says the officers were deployed in response to Christopher Dorner's written threats to department officials in a rambling 14-page manifesto.

Authorities say Dorner has implicated himself in the killing of two people in Irvine over the weekend. He's also the suspect in the overnight killing of a police officer and critical wounding of another cop.

Police did not say how seriously the people in Torrance were injured.

Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck says the fugitive ex-police officer wanted in three murders has multiple weapons including an assault rifle.

Beck also says more than  40 protection details have been assigned to possible targets of fired officer Christopher Dorner.

Beck says the massive manhunt for Dorner may be the largest in the department's history.
