Big Bear Lake, California
Christopher Dorner was in Big Bear Lake!
Christopher Dorner was staying at Big Bear Lake, across the street from the Command Post. At 12:22 PM Tuesday, he tried up two women (who were unhurt) and stole their car. He was spotted by Fish and Game Officers and gunfire was exchanged on HWY 38.
Dorner abandoned the vehicle and headed into the forest to an unoccupied cabin complex. San Bernardino County Sheriff’s chased him and also exchanged gunfire. Two sheriff’s deputies were wounded and one officer, unfortunately, succumbed to his wounds.
Two perimeters were set up around the cabin. The outer perimeter was manned by the Sheriff’s Department and the SWAT teams took the inner perimeter. Due to extensive media coverage, a temporary flight restriction was put into place.
The SWAT team sent a Bear Cat vehicle to knock the cabin walls down. As they approached the final wall they heard a gunshot and the cabin burst into flames.
Dorner never surrendered. Officers are unable to approach the cabin due to the heat left from the fire. No body has been recovered as of yet, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Until Christopher Dorner is identified, the tactical alert will continue.
