Green smoke….was Dorner trying to surrender?

Article on Dorner’s last moments.It mentioned that Dorner fired off a couple of green smoke grenades. I wondered if that had any meaning. After googling I discovered a few references to use of green smoke in the military to denote “wounded”.

Can any readers verify this?

If true, the officers claim that there was no indication of surrender  were probably bunk.  And it would appear that perhaps Dorner was signaling just that, before they burned him to the ground. No, they did NOT want that man captured alive.

But I think we knew that after the LAPD shot up two women in pick-up truck. Who have since settled for $4+ million.

As for the $1 million dollar reward for information leading to the capture of Dorner. One man, whom Dorner carjacked, and who called a friend who was a sheriff’s deputy. Feels that he has a claim to the reward. And would like to use it to fund his children’s tuition and improve the local Scout camp. (Heltebreke feels he and the couple in Big Bear should split the reward.)
