The fugitive former Los Angeles cop sought in three murders is barricaded in a cabin in Big Bear Lake, California, in the San Bernardino Mountains. Christopher Dorner was cornered by police earlier and exchanged gunfire with authorities, reportedly injuring two deputies.
The Los Angeles Times is reporting that one of the injured officers has died.
The shootout occurred after deputies who were searching for Dorner in the Big Bear area responded to the report of a stolen vehicle. The people whose vehicle was stolen described the suspect as looking very similar to Dorner, who also served time in the military.
After police located the vehicle, Dorner ran into the woods and barricaded himself inside a cabin. A shootout with police officers followed.
While the story is still developing, it’s also believed that Dorner has taken a couple hostage inside the cabin where he is holed up.
