SACRAMENTO (CBSLA.com) — California Governor Jerry Brown and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa both spoke out Thursday about triple homicide suspect Christopher Dorner, a former LAPD officer.

Brown reacted to the murder of a Riverside police officer Thursday, allegedly committed by Dorner.

The Governor said, “Anne and I were shocked and saddened to learn of the senseless attack on a Riverside police officer that resulted in his death this morning. We join his family, friends, co-workers and the Riverside community in mourning his death and in honoring his sacrifice.”

The unidentified 34-year-old officer was shot and killed Thursday morning as he and a officer trainee were stopped at a traffic light in Riverside.

Brown said to honor the officer, Capitol flags will be flown at half-staff.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa also weighed in on the manhunt and triple homicide suspect.

Speaking in Sacramento, Villaraigosa said Dorner “is apparently a sick individual” who had no justification for violence.

The mayor said no problems that Dorner had with the LAPD could justify the rampage.

“There’s no beef, there’s no beef that someone can have to kill three innocent people in the way that he has,” Villaraigosa said. “So whatever problem he has is mental. God’s speed to our police officers that we find this individual as quickly as possible.”
