Deputy killed in shootout with Dorner near Big Bear

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. — One San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputy died of wounds suffered during a shootout with murder suspect Christopher Dorner, sources told the Los Angeles Times.

Big Bear Dorner shootoutDorner is believed to be surrounded in a cabin near Big Bear, according to law enforcement sources. All mountain highways in the area have been closed.

Dorner allegedly shot and wounded two San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies during the gunfight, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

Dozens of law enforcement officers raced the last reported scene of a gun battle near the 7 Oaks cabin area about 20 mile south of Big Bear Lake.

“There are deputies everywhere on the ground and on foot,” said Cindy Bachman, a San Bernardino County sheriff’s spokeswoman.

The shooting occurred after Dorner burglarized a home on Club View Drive, tied up a couple and stole a white pickup truck, authorities said. Deputies responded to a vehicle theft about 12:22 p.m., and the resident who reported the theft said the suspect matched Dorner’s description.

Deputies located the stolen pickup a short time later off Highway 38 on Glass Road. The driver, thought to be Dorner, ran from the truck and took refuge in a cabin, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. Deputies and the man in the cabin exchanged gunfire, and the two deputies were wounded in the exchange, the department reported. Both men were airlifted to a hospital. Their conditions were not immediately known.

It was not known for certain if Dorner was still in the cabin or had fled the scene.

        "ignorant peasant" ….who says that now a days?? Anyways….anyways, what Dorner did is unjustified down to earth wrong.

      Wow so you justify murder of several people as a proper response to possible unfair treatment on the job. Which prior to this instance Donner had been written up. So what if someone had felt your response to this situation should be handled in such a manor. What if it was your family killed because you responded in such a way. Murder is never a justifiable option.

      Are they planning to take Dorner out using a drone strike? The FAA has ordered all news helicopters out of the big bear area. WTF!? Something big is happening, all the while we shouldn't forget about Obama and his state of the union and CISPA..

      Btw, I applaud you for standing for the truth despite the negative feedback. 3 people died and the stupid community is outraged. Really? What about the 200+ innocent civilians (mainly children) being blown to pieces by OUR Government's drones? Why isn't anyone pissed about that?!

      You're an IDIOT thinking that just because there is "speculation" that he was done wrong by the LA Police, that gave him justification to do what he did to completely innocent people that had absolutely nothing to do with his termination.

      So, what you're saying is that "every" person that is terminated from their job "justified or not" can go out and shoot anyone???????

      You should have been in that cabin with him!!!!!!!!!!!!

    even if the police department "did him wrong", how does that make what he is doing RIGHT? My dad always taught me "two wrongs don't make a right". Apparently, people nowadays aren't taught basic morals.

    you should rethink that comment. one of the people he murdered was a close family friend of ours and for anyone to condone Dorner's actions is ludacris and inhumane

    I don't believe anything if the only "evidence" (and there's no evidence so far, just an investigation) is the word of law enforcement.

    You people really believe what the mainstream media is telling you?? How sad.

    Dorner only did what he did (no matter how heinous it was) to gain national attention. He knew what he was doing when he killed those people. It was the only way the nation will pay attention to his story.

    Notice how the government is trying to shut him up? Why isn't media coverage this intense when it's just a regular civilian who murdered his pregnant wife/girlfriend or rapes children?? Why the $1million reward? Why is the government allowing the 1st use of Drones attacking U.S. citizens to happen to Dorner?

    Wake up people. The news doesn't tell you the truth. They tell you what they (the government) wants you to believe. Smh.

    If the LAPD did him wrong he should have obtained a lawyer a sued them instead of killing innocent people. The families of those people that did him wrong are not to blame. These killings are senseless!!!

    All these people against the police, and rooting for a murderer are just plain stupid. You may be complaining about something police gave you a hard time for and feel resentment, but in reality you probably did something. One day your gonna need help and need to call someone for assistance, and maybe you'll see how much these officers risk their lives on a daily basis. As we speak everyone of the officers on duty is at risk, as long as this man is on the loose. All these people think its funny to root on a killer, but in actuality they would be terrified and traumatized to see a killing in person. I do not wish death upon him, but severe injury would be suffice, to live with the pain, like the families have to live with from a sudden loss. Guilty or innocent these fallen officers and family members did not deserve death with out a fair trial.

    Life is not a video game, when Dorner is going off shooting people they are not just collateral damage, they are real people with lives and families, people who love them. Ironically, the same people who are cheering Dorner are the self-same people who would be first on the band wagon about police brutality – which, by the way, is what he was fired for. He was fired from the LAPD for excessively brutal treatment of criminals. Because he got caught doing it, he took revenge on the FAMILY of the party he held responsible – not even on the person he held responsible, because he wanted to maximize suffering. He has subsequently killed others. On what planet are his actions justified?
