The fugitive ex-LAPD cop wanted for three murders is pinned down inside a remote cabin after police found him in the mountains near Big Bear, California, and engaged him in a raging gun battle where he shot two sheriff’s deputies, killing one.
Hundreds of gunshots could be heard coming from the woods in San Bernardino National Forest as officers exchanged assault weapons fire with Christopher Dorner, who has promised to ‘wage war’ against police and kill any officers who tried to stop him.
KCAL-TV reports that the cabin caught fire about 4.15pm local time after deputies firing several dear gas canisters. The fire spread rapidly and deputies did not appear to move from their positions.
Dorner, a combat-trained U.S. Navy reserve officers, shot two San Bernardino sheriff’s deputies as he tried to make an escape from the cabin, but was driven back inside under heavy gunfire.
