Several people were involved in the police finally tracking him down, but they may not be able to collect on the $1 million reward, thanks to an interesting loophole.
The Mayor of L.A. had announced a $1 million reward for anyone who could provide information leading to the “capture and conviction” of Christopher Dorner.
The $1 million was reportedly funded by various private groups.
However, technically the offer was his “capture,” and also for his ultimate conviction in a court of law.
No official decision has yet been on the reward, but it seems likely that it won’t get paid to anyone who helped police find Dorner.
Here is a video from yesterday’s shoot-out as authorities surrounded Dorner.
