RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) -- A fugitive ex-Los Angeles police officer has been charged with murdering a Riverside police officer and special circumstances that could bring the death penalty.

Riverside County District Attorney Paul Zellerbach says Christopher Dorner is also charged with the attempted murder of another Riverside officer and two LAPD officers.

The charges announced Monday do not involve two other people Dorner is suspected of killing in Orange County.

A $1 million reward has prompted numerous tips to authorities.

Los Angeles police Lt. Andrew Neiman says well over 600 clues are being investigated as of Monday morning.

The search for Dorner is continuing in the Big Bear area of the San Bernardino Mountains where his pickup truck was found torched last week, but there's been no sighting of him there.
