One of the deputies involved in a gun battle Tuesday afternoon with fugitive former police officer Christopher Dorner has died of his wounds, law enforcement sources told The Times.
The San Bernardino County sheriff's deputy was airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, according to the sources.
Another deputy was also wounded in the shootout near a cabin where Dorner was believed to be holed up in the snow-covered mountains near Big Bear. His condition was not immediately known.
The afternoon gun battle in which hundreds of rounds were exchanged was part of a quickly changing situation that began after Dorner allegedly broke into a home, tied up a couple and held them hostage before fleeing with their white pickup truck, authorities said.
Then Dorner was allegedly spotted by state Fish and Wildlife officers in the pickup truck, sources said. A vehicle-to-vehicle shootout ensued. The officers' vehicle was peppered with multiple rounds, according to authorities...

It looks like he is either fried in the cabin or escaped. The cabin is engulfed in flames.
Wait til they start trying to take guns from normal people.
They’re saying he got away ....
Well, they also heard a single gunshot just before the fire started. That was just after several rounds of tear gas were fired into the cabin. Hopefully the cowardly leftist thug shot himself.
Fox News just broke away from the Anna Nicole Smith death story for this news.....
got away? That would be crazy. I am not sure they would admit it if he got away...
How does one overweight individual elude the LAPD (10,023 officers), the San Bernadino Sheriff’s office (3,200 officers) plus all the other Los Angeles area police units? Something stinks here.
This sordid event is not going to help the gungrabbers’ argument when they say “this only PROVES that citizens must be disarmed! Look what one rogue ex-cop did!”
Obama is watching the situation closely unlike Bengazi. He is worried it might interfere with his Marist sou message. Probably had a drone waiting to take care of things before 9pm
Live feed above. I don’t understand why they said they are just going to let the cabin burn to the ground. What? So no body will be found and we won’t know if he’s dead or alive or whether he died here or how.
Which, by the way, appears to have been a part of Dorner’s agenda.
I doubt they’d be sure that he got away at this point. If they’re allowing fire trucks in they have his body.
I hope his hostages were freed before he burned the cabin down. I can’t believe anyone, even the left, would make this despicable person any kind of a “hero”. I suppose it doesn’t matter how many innocent people get murdered as long as they can make him representative (in their minds) as supporting the “cause”. What if he kills children? What if he kills someone in one of their favored “victim groups”? Apparently the people he’s already killed, even the minorities, don’t count.
Sometimes a killer is just a killer, no matter how he tries to give it political cover.
This should be a good training video for any idiot that thinks he will be able to defend his house with several thousand rounds of ammo and a cache of weapons when the SHTF.
yeah and they’re _looking_ for him.
Very possible he could have been wounded when he got into a gunfight the two Fish & Game cops and/or when he was shot at by the two LE officers at the cabin.
if you know his training background compared to the affirmative action badge-toters and man-hating lesbians that make up the police forces today, he’s probably got more skills and abilities than most of those cops.
OMG a fire! Guess they learned a lot from Waco. I saw it was the tear gas canisters that set the fire.
A question: With all his training and equipment, does it seem logical that he would anticipate and prepare for tear gas? Don’t get me wrong, I certainly hope they got him. I just wonder what other alternatives were available in this age of thermal imaging, etc.
