While law enforcement officials scoured the hillsides above Big Bear on Tuesday for murder suspect Christopher Dorner, wardens from California's Department of Fish and Wildlife were called in to patrol the rugged terrain of Highway 38.
It was on that highway that the officers first encountered Dorner, engaging the former cop in a white-knuckle chase involving two commandeered vehicles. The pursuit culminated in what officials described as a wild shootout between Dorner and a state game warden.
The actions by alert wildlife officers may have set in motion Dorner's last stand in a snowbound cabin, surrounded by police. The cabin burned to the ground and there were conflicting reports over whether a body had been found inside.

He was driven to earth by fish cops. Good old boys with AR’s.
The Gentlemen whose pickup was taken by Dorner with assaul weapon in his face said it was Dorner.
I believe he was the man in the fiery cabin and he did not escape.
Confirmation will come in due time.
I watched the interviews on Channel 5 here in Orange County.
Local Channel 5 also has a reporter on stakeout as his mothers house in La Palma.
They had a new and shiny AR 15 with 308 caliber they fired at the fleeing white pickup according to the interview on Channel 5.
He fired his Piston? Well, that bastuhd....
Camouflage is critical when hunting or being hunted. Too bad he didn’t realize that his real camouflage would have been in Watts or Harlem.
They had an AR with .308???
Reeeeeelly?! I have one I made but, cops and departments are both lazy and cost sensitive.
They usually shoot .223/556.
An AR .308 cost mucho thousands of $$$’s. Ain’t no forest ranger gonna have a badazz weapon that has a .25 MOA @ 300yrds.
Departments know the average SWAT sniper encounter is 53yrds.
Almost David and Goliath range....
Theory has it that the Storm locked him on the mountain after the asle on his first vehicle broke.
It wuz OJ.
That is what I heard on the interview....but I am not knowledgable regarding guns....but I have gone deer hunting....
I've fired my piston too. But never in anger.
I’ze messing wit yoo bro....
I doubt yer Deer hunting sperience but, your Dear spleezing experience, like mine, is prolly simluhh...
It’s toosday?....Wait....Just reeelized it’s Weddingsday.....if yer in Massachusetts....
But he was shooting with intent .
And then they alerted Bo Bo and they set out a Pica nic Basket... and he could not resist!!!!
Jellystone will never be the same
Lol....or 1600 Penn Ave
Has anyone noticed that all pictures of the perp had him smiling and looking like a real sweet guy...that face smiling couldn’t have done such bad things...
I guess we have here the total justification for the recent govt purchase of 7000 AR's, and the BILLIONS of hollow points to agencies like NOAA. See? It's totally innocent after all, in pursuit of justice and the American way!
