Human remains that appear charred were found in the cabin where police were lead during a manhunt of Christopher Dorner, an ex-LAPD cop and Navy Reserve lieutenant who allegedly committed several shootings in Southern California.
Police have been searching for a week for the man they believe went on a shooting spree and supposedly killed four people after being fired by the Los Angeles Police Department in 2008.
According to The Los Angeles Times, on Tuesday, Dorner was fleeing from law enforcement officials when he shot and killed a San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputy and injured another. Dorner then holed himself up in a cabin near Big Bear, CA.
On Tuesday evening, police officers broke into the wooden cabin and sprayed tear gas. After demolishing the cabin, police heard a gun fire as the place caught on fire.
The body has not officially been identified as Dorner.
According to The New York Times, Los Angeles police officers have been guarding 50 families in the area 24/7 who may be in danger if Dorner is on the loose.
Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck told The Los Angeles Times, “This could have ended much better, it could have ended worse. I feel for the family of the deputy who lost his life."
