Massive Manhunt for Ex-LAPD Cop Ends in Gunfight, Fire

Steve Neavling

The massive manhunt for a former Los Angeles Police officer ended Tuesday in spectacular fashion in the San Bernardino Mountains – a car chase, gunfight and blaze, the USA Today reports.

Authorities are awaiting forensic tests to confirm the charred body found at the vacation cabin was Christopher Dorner, who went on a four-day murderous rampage that killed four people.

A man who appeared to be Dorner fled police and barricaded himself in a vacant cabin before making a last stand that killed on sheriff’s deputy and wounded another, the USA Today reported.

‘‘We have reason to believe that it is him,’’ San Bernardino County sheriff’s spokeswoman Cynthia Bachman told the Associated Press.
