9:05 PM: Written on duct tape that the coin was wrapped in is "Thanks but no thanks Will Bratton" as well as "1 M.O.A." [edit: per user /u/November_Bravo [12] "1 Minute of Angle, in shooting terms this means being accurate enough to shoot a ~1" group at 100 yards"]. The video is apparently of Mr. Getter's interview after the event. He is the schizophrenic man Dorner claimed was a victim of excessive force. Getter's testimony supposedly confirms Dorner's complaint to his superiors but nothing has been shown to the public to confirm this. Source[13] - LA Times.

9:15 PM: Press conference - ~400 homes expected to be searched this evening, more than half done. No sightings or signs of him outside of the last tracks in Big bear in the snow/mud. No new tracks of a second vehicle near the original burned out vehicle (which is now at crime lab). Schools and ski resort are opening back up, implying the area around Big Bear is relatively clear but search is ongoing in poor weather conditions. Aerial support is still flying, two SB County helicopters and one LA County chopper all of which with F.L.I.R. infrared/night vision technology. Source - KCAL9 News

9:40 PM: KCAL9 reporting multiple news sources received letters/DVDs from the suspect. Only Anderson Cooper got the coin, reportedly. Also reports that some of Dorner's equipment, including police related items were found in a trash bin as early as Monday in San Diego. Source - KCAL9 News

10:10 PM: Alleged excessive force victim Gettler's family interviewed, confirms suspect Dorner was standing up for their son (their words) but then pleaded with Dorner to turn himself in and stop hurting people. Also, the boat he tried to steal was unable to launch because a rope got caught in the propeller. The 81-year old man said the man mentioned "heading to Mexico". Source - KTTV Fox 11.

10:30 PM: Online court documents reportedly show that the LAPD questioned Dorner's excessive force claims because of the timing of reporting it to his supervisor. Apparently he received an unsatisfactory performance review just before that, saying he'd have to "improve in order to move up in the department". Source - KTLA 5 News.

10:35 PM: Bomb threat called in at the Federal Building in West Los Angeles. Police/bomb techs on scene. Likely unrelated as it's nowhere near the current searches but noteworthy given the timing. Source KTLA 5 News.

11:05 PM: Dorner was discharged from the reserves last Friday specifically. Suspect was reportedly married for ~30 days back in 2007. LAPD has doubled up all patrols, no solo officers. Motorcycle cops have been put into cruisers for their protection. Various units at key strategic targets and the entire state is reportedly on tactical alert. Source - KNBC 4 News.

11:15 PM: Some schools in the areas of Riverside, Corona, Riverside and Norwalk (where suspect was raised) are remaining closed tomorrow. If you're a local, be sure to call first. Source - KABC 7 News.

11:30PM: Last update for tonight as the last of the local news programs have gone off air. Not much new news but I'll check in and update tomorrow. Hopefully national media steps in and you guys can keep posting updates until then. Thanks for all the support and to my fellow Cali/Nevada friends, stay safe and alert!
