Christopher Dorner, the ex-LAPD cop who’s the object of the biggest manhunt in L.A.’s history, has surfaced. According to L.A. Now on Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 12, 2013, Dorner burglarized a home, tied up an elderly couple and stole their car. He is now in a cabin cornered and in a shoot-out with law enforcement.
The heavily armed Dorner has been alluding police since last week when he killed three people, all with ties to LAPD. Dorner is exchanging gunfire with CA authorities. Right now he is held up in his cabin in the woods somewhere near Big Bear this afternoon.
According to Fox News Live on Tuesday afternoon, Dorner shot two deputies, one was airlifted to an area hospital. The aerial view on Fox shows the cabin surrounded by police and authorities believe he has plenty of firearms and ammunition.
The authorities have been going through the mountainous area looking through cabins in the area where Dorner’s truck was found a few days ago. When police found the truck it was destroyed by fire and there was camping equipment and assault weapons still inside.
Tuesday morning the police thought he might have had help getting away and he could possibly be in Mexico. It turns out he was still in the Big Bear area in a cabin. The police have gotten a floor plan of this cabin.
LAPD has provided protection for 50 people since Dorner went on this shooting rampage. These people are families of the LAPD and some who appeared in his manifesto. The police are not taking any chances with this fugitive.
Norwalk Christian School remains closed for the rest of the week after it was discovered that Dorner mentioned the campus of this school in his manifesto, according to the Huffington Post. Now that law enforcement has Dorner cornered in a cabin, many of the LAPD and their families can breath easier today.
Law Enforcement asked the media at about 5:15 p.m. EST to pull the helicopters off the scene. They did not want to give away positions of the law enforcement personal around his cabin, in case Dorner has the TV on and is watching the coverage. The summer cabin is close to the road. According to Fox, it is also winterized for the cold mountain winters.
