A Riverside officer wounded in a shooting that involved a fired Los Angeles Police Department officer who was the subject of a Southern California manhunt is recovering at home after his release from a hospital.
Officer Andrew Tachias, 27, underwent surgery last week and faces a lengthy recovery, his sister said in an interview with KPCC. His partner, Officer Michael Crain, was killed in the Feb. 7 ambush shooting during the initial stages of the manhunt for ex-officer Christopher Dorner that ended about a week later with a deadly shootout and cabin fire near Big Bear.
Tachias and Crain, 34, were attacked by Dorner in what police described as an "ambush" early Feb. 7 at a Riverside stoplight. Earlier that morning, Dorner opened fire on two Los Angeles Police Department officers in Corona who were part of a security detail for subjects named in a manifesto that outlined the former officer's revenge plot.
