February 12, 2013 - The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has asked general aviation users and airports, especially in the western United States, to have an increased awareness of any suspicious activity around local airports as authorities continue their search for fugitive Christopher Dorner.
Dorner is accused of fatally shooting three people, including a police officer, in California last week.
According to the TSA, Dorner is believed to have received some flight training during his stint in the U.S. Navy, but his potential flying skills are unknown. TSA officials emphasize that no specific use of aviation has been mentioned or suspected from Dorner, they are urging those at local airports maintain best security practices and report any suspicious activity to law enforcement.
Suspicious activity or unauthorized use of aircraft should be reported to the TSA General Aviation Hotline at 866-427-3287 (866-GA-SECUR).
