HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – After being mentioned in an accused cop killer's online manifesto, actor Charlie Sheen, on a TMZ.com video, asked the suspect to call him.

Police in California and around the country are attempting to locate Christopher Dorner, a former LAPD officer, who is accused of three murders, including an LA police officer. In the manifesto, Dorner mentions a number of celebrities, including Sheen. Dorner said Sheen was “effin awesome.”

“You mentioned me in your manifesto, so thank you for your kind words,” Sheen said the video. “I am urging you to call me. Let's figure out together how to end this thing.”

Dorner, who was fired from the LAPD force for allegedly falsely accusing his training officer of physically abusing a mentally ill man, posted his 14-page manifesto on his Facebook page. The document list the names of about 40 people who he blamed for his termination from the LAPD.

On Saturday, LAPD officials said they plan to re-examine the circumstances that led to Dorner's dismissal. The review, they emphasized, was not being conducted to “appease a murderer.” Instead, police said the case will be reviewed to reassure the public that the department is transparent and fair in all of its actions.
