The Riverside Police Department officer who was killed last week in an alleged ambush by fugitive ex-cop Christopher Jordan Dorner, was identified by officials Sunday as Michael Crain, an 11-year veteran of the department.

Michael Crain, 34, was allegedly killed by ex-LAPD officer Christopher Jordan Dorner.

Michael Crain, 34, was allegedly killed by ex-LAPD officer Christopher Jordan Dorner.

Crain, 34, was killed Thursday when he and his partner were allegedly fired upon by ex-LAPD officer Christopher Jordan Dorner.

“While God is quick to forgive, he does demand justice and there will be a day of reckoning,” said Riverside Mayor Rusty Baker, who called Crain’s death “senseless.”

Crain served two tours in Kuwait as a rifleman in the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, 3rd Battalion 1st Marines, according to a news release. He leaves behind his wife, a 10-year-old son and a 4-year-old daughter.

Funeral services are scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at Grove Community Church in Riverside.

Authorities say Dorner, a fired LAPD police officer, ambushed Crain and his 27-year-old partner while they were stopped at a red light at the intersection of Arlington and Magnolia avenues in Riverside early Thursday morning. Dorner then allegedly fled.
