Christopher Dorner manhunt ends
It seems that the biggest US police manhunt in decades has ended as Christopher Dorner made a bloody final stand in a mountain cabin outside LA.
Hundreds of officers backed by helicopters and military equipment watched the cabin burn, the flames illuminating the night, after a siege that claimed the life of one deputy sheriff and wounded another.
Dorner had barricaded himself inside the unoccupied cabin after a shootout and a chase by car and foot. Hundreds of shots were fired in the ensuing siege. The blaze began soon after teargas was fired into and around the cabin. During a pause in shooting a single gunshot from inside the cabin was heard.
Police expect to recover Dorners body from the smoldering ruin of the cabin that was too hot to immediately be entered after the blaze turned the fugitive’s refuge into a likely pyre.
