Fox 5 San Diego
As the manhunt for Christopher Dornerhas grew, San Diego’s international border became increasingly vigilant. Ex cop and now Cop Killer Christopher Dorner was finally, ahem, taken care of but that didn't change the fact that thousands of people from the US and Mexico were seriously inconvenienced for his actions.
SAN YSIDRO, Calif. - Only two traffic lanes were open on southbound Interstate 5 at the US – Mexican border over the weekend, as the hunt for a suspected cop killer continued.
Officers wearing body armor and cradling rifles watched traffic heading through the unusual bottleneck at the checkpoint in San Ysidro. The U.S. Border Patrol confirmed extra security at the busiest border crossing in the world was a result of the manhunt for 33-year-old Christopher Jordan Dorner.
“Usually you go right through, but not this time,” said Desiree Prado, a San Diego resident.
