Fugitive ex-Los Angeles police officer Christopher Dorner is suspected in a Big Bear shootout where two deputies were wounded and airlifted to a hospital with “unknown injuries,” according to a statement from the San Bernadino County Sheriff’s Department.
Dorner came upon a police roadblock in a stolen vehicle from a house in the Big Bear area. That’s when Dorner allegedly opened fire on the deputies and was later surrounded by authorities.
Dorner is now barricaded in a cabin as officers moved in. The sheriff issued a statement asking news helicopters to pull back from the area because “gunfire is being exchanged.”
Authorities have been searching for Dorner since last week. Dorner is accused of killing an officer and the daughter and fiancé of another cop. The fugitive says he believes he was unfairly terminated
