SAN FRANCISCO -- Attorney General Kamala D. Harris issued a statement on yesterday's events in Big Bear:

"Law enforcement suffered another tragic loss---a dedicated sheriff's deputy was killed while performing the highest act of bravery. This officer, as well as the officer who was wounded, displayed extraordinary courage in confronting an armed killer. My thoughts and prayers are with each member of California's law enforcement family touched by these tragedies, particularly the families and friends of the fallen," said Attorney General Harris.

"I applaud our law enforcement agencies' swift and coordinated response to this crisis. Through the professionalism and hard work of dozens of law enforcement agencies across California, the manhunt is over and the people of California are safer. I want to extend my appreciation to Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck, Irvine Police Chief David Maggard, Riverside Police Chief Sergio Diaz, and San Bernardino Sheriff John McMahon for their leadership."

Attorney General Harris today attended the funeral services for Riverside police officer Michael Crain.
