LAS VEGAS (AP) — The search for a former Los Angeles police officer accused of killing three people, including a cop, extends to the Las Vegas area, where he has a home.

Clark County property records show Christopher Dorner owns a small two-story, three-bedroom home in a neighborhood about nine miles southwest of the Las Vegas Strip.

Clark County property records show he bought the house in 2007 for about $265,000.

Las Vegas police officer Laura Meltzer says patrol officers received information about Dorner on Thursday, including a photo.

FBI Agent Patrick Turner says federal agents were watching for Dorner, but there was no immediate information that he was heading for Nevada.

Nevada Highway Patrol troopers are watching for Dorner and his vehicle on roads leading to the Las Vegas area from Southern California.
