Police have been searching for Christopher Dorner, 33, who allegedly killed three people, including a Los Angeles police officer. Dorner, a U.S. Navy veteran, listed Enid among a list of cities where he once lived.

U.S. Navy officials couldn't confirm Friday whether Dorner had served at Vance Air Force Base in Enid. Records show Dorner served in “various aviation training units” from 2002 to 2004. Dorner left the Navy Reserve Feb. 1 as a lieutenant, records show.

Capt. Jack Morris, a spokesman for the Enid Police Department, said Friday the department didn't expect to be involved in the investigation. Dorner only came to Enid in connection with his military service, Morris said, and it doesn't appear he had any personal connections there.

“There's nothing to indicate he's en route to Enid,” Morris said.

Dorner lists his previous residences, including Enid, in a portion of the document in which he encourages journalists to “utilize every source you have that specializes in collections for your reports.” Dorner calls on journalists at several points in the message to investigate his past for instances of bullying or aggression, saying it's “not in my DNA.”
