San Bernardino, CA(CBS News) - Christopher Dorner, the former LAPD officer who was suspected of killing four people, and was the subject of an intense manhunt, has died after being barricaded in a cabin that was later engulfed in flames, CBS News has learned from a law enforcement source.
CBS senior correspondent John Miller reported that Dorner's body was recovered from the burned cabin in Big Bear, California.
The cabin in which Dorner was believed to be holed up in San Bernardino County, east of L.A, is in flames, CBS Station KCAL Los Angeles had reported. It followed after an earlier shootout Tuesday afternoon between the suspect and authorities that left one deputy killed and another wounded.
A law enforcement official, who wished to remain anonymous because the investigation is ongoing, told The Associated Press that the person believed to be the suspect never came out of the burning cabin.
