As the hunt for Christopher Dorner extends to the sea and accomplices are sought, those who were named in his manifesto continue to fear -- very rightly so -- for their lives. Reverend Michael Evans, who runs the Holy Angels School in Arcadia, is the brother of Teresa Evans, who was named by Dorner as one of the cops he had a problem with. Out of caution, the Reverend announced on Sunday that he would be "away for a few days because a member of my family was named in the manifesto of Christopher Dorner." Additionally, the school has been shut down.

The shut down began yesterday, and continues into today, reports City News Service.

In the manifesto, Dorner wrote that Evans kicked a suspect in the process of trying to subdue him:

In 8/07 I reported an officer (Ofcr. -----/now a Sergeant), for kicking a suspect (excessive force) during a Use of Force while I was assigned as a patrol officer at LAPD’s Harbor Division. While cuffing the suspect, (-----), ----- kicked the suspect twice in the chest and once in the face. The kick to the face left a visible injury on the left cheek below the eye. Unfortunately after reporting it to supervisors and investigated by PSB (internal affairs investigator Det. -----), nothing was done.

But Evans denies having done so, and witnesses back her story. The suspect also showed no signs of being kicked.

Nevertheless, Dorner is going after family members of those officers with whom he has beef. Monica Quan, who Dorner allegedly shot and killed in Irvine, was the daughter of an officer who was involved with his firing.
