LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Police Commission began its meeting Tuesday with a moment of silence for the three people fugitive former police officer Christopher Dorner is accused of killing and the wounded officers.

Police Chief Charlie Beck told the board that a review of Dorner's complaints about his firing is under way. Beck earlier announced the review, saying he takes seriously complaints of racism in the department. Dorner is black.

Commissioner John Mack, a former president of the Los Angeles Urban League, said the department has made "dramatic progress" in its relationship with the African-American community.

Commissioner Rafael Bernardino said the review should examine how Dorner was hired in the first place.
