SANTA ANA, Calif. -- A Los Angeles police captain who's been named as a target in a fugitive former cop's online manifesto says he is taking the threat against him seriously.

Capt. Phil Tingirides tells the Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/Y0rukd) that he hasn't been able to leave his home since he learned Christopher Dorner was seeking revenge against former LAPD colleagues that Dorner blames for ending his career.

Authorities suspect Dorner killed three people, including the daughter of a retired police captain who had represented Dorner in the disciplinary proceedings that led to his firing.

Tingirides chaired a board that stripped Dorner of his badge.

He says he's concerned for the safety of his family after seeing what Dorner is accused of doing to the daughter of former Capt. Randy Quan.
