Charlie Sheen has released a video telling an ex-cop accused of killing three people to call him, after the actor was named in the man's online manifesto.

Police are hunting for Christopher Dorner, a 33-year-old former Los Angeles officer angry over his firing and sought in a deadly shooting rampage after warning he would wage ''warfare'' on those who wronged him, authorities said.

Authorities issued a statewide ''officer safety warning,'' and police were sent to protect people named in a manifesto that was believed to be written by the fired officer, who has military training. Among those mentioned were members of the Los Angeles Police Department.

''I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty,'' the manifesto said.

It also asserted: ''Unfortunately, I will not be alive to see my name cleared. That's what this is about, my name. A man is nothing without his name.''

The statement also describes Sheen as "effin' awesome."

Sheen, who was famously fired from hit TV show Two and a Half Men in 2011 after a drug spree addressed Dorner in a brief video posted at TMZ.com.

"Christopher Dorner? Charlie Sheen," the actor says. "You mentioned me in your manifesto, so thank you for your kind words.

"I am urging you to call me. Let's figure out together how to end this thing. Call me, I look forward to talking to you."

Among those the 33-year-old Dorner is suspected of killing is a Riverside police officer, and on the fourth day of the manhunt, authorities put up a US$1 million reward for information leading to his capture.
