The Downey Police Department is on modified deployment today in response to the manhunt for former police officer Christopher Dorner.

Dorner is suspected of shooting a young Irvine couple on Sunday and a Riverside police officer this morning.

Lt. Mark McDaniel wouldn’t give details of Downey PD’s patrol strategies but said they were monitoring the situation closely.

“We would like to offer our condolences to the victims and all those involved,” he said.

Dorner’s vehicle was found in Big Bear this afternoon, according to media reports.
