Skip to comments....new pictures reveal ferocity of cabin shoot-out

The husband and wife who say they surprised Christopher Dorner in their home, hours before he was killed in a dramatic standoff, described their terror as he bound their hands and feet. Jim and Karen Reynolds say they came to the home just before noon on Tuesday to find the fugitive had been staying in an upstairs room.
Mrs Reynolds said that Dorner seemed 'calm and methodical' when he approached them, but her first instinct when she saw him was to run away - and Dorner chased after her.
She tried to run up the stairs but was quickly caught by Dorner, who dragged her away.
Mr Reynolds said that after first trying to keep them calm, Dorner tied up their hands and feet with zip ties before stuffing washcloths in their mouths.
He then covered their faces with pillowcases and wrapped electrical cords around their heads.
'I really thought it could be the end,' she told reporters on Wednesday night.
The Reynolds said that despite early reports, it was them - and not their housekeepers - who had encountered Dorner in the home.
They said that he tried to keep them calm and told them repeatedly that he was not going to kill them. Mr Reynolds, who has been married to Karen for 36 years, added: 'He said he just wanted to clear his name.'
Mrs Reynolds added: 'He said he needed transportation out of big bear. He continued to say to us quite frequently he would not kill us and just asked us to do what he asked.
'He knelt down beside me and said "you're going to be quiet, right?"'

Just saying, I don't think the brush sweeps quite as broad as your remark says.
“...high-power .308-caliber M-14 battle rifle...”
Brits do seem to have a peculiar fascination with US weapons.
You are exactly right. Now, would you just stop with the acid comments. I am deeply weary of those who keep pontificating about how to get on with your life after someone has done very unjust things to you. I am getting sick and tired of your poor choice of words in calling people "stupid". It would be best if everyone let this thing end and quit going after each other.
I'm going to tell you the effect your comments are having on me and probably a lot of others. EVERY time you come out and make some acid comment about that was not the way to do things (which we all know) and call someone "stupid", you just stir up more anger about the injustices that have not been resolved. Give it a rest.
On a positive note, apparently Dorner DID make an attempt to not overtly harm people not directly connected to those he believed had been instrumental causing some of his distress or law enforcement chasing him. He did show restraint in that area. Loughner didn't show any restraint at all and just killed everyone in front of him he could. So did Hassan. Something is different about this case, but crickets will be chirping before we ever see any real investigative reporting as to what actually set this man off.
This guy is really popular.
The Food Channel just called asked if he would make a guest appearance as the secret ingredient on Iron Chef.
Pitmaster has set up a cook-off between Team Reno and Team LAPD.
During the standoff, the media asked a spokesperson if the cabin was completely surrounded, so he could not escape.
She did not know...
...a circular firing squad comes to mind.
Wow, Dorner’s a real hero huh?
The sheriff’s office will probably handle the cabin like the LAPD handled the old lady’s pickup truck that they shot up.
We are not to worry, because some anonymous donor paid will pay to replace the truck...and the sheeple are supposed to believe that public funds will not be used.
Some ‘donor’ will probably replace the cabin.
Funny. You have heard nothing out of the thug in the White House about this guy. If Obama had a son, he would be like this poor guy. Trying to clear his name because whitey hated him. Nothing. So quiet at 1600 Penn Ave. No talk of gun control for crazy ex-cops who are out of their minds because they “took” away his job.
Absolutely not. When one makes ugly comments, it takes the entire discussion down to the lowest level. What's the difference between the accused and the accuser if that happens?
News coverage in the British publications completely blows away anything I’ve seen in US papers. Journalists here are borderline illiterate.
Funny, stating the obvious flat truth is an acid comment.
Killing someones daughter and then taunting them about it doesn’t clear their name.
It means they are STUPID and looking to die.
They do, but I appreciate that they describe them correctly.
Do you think that maybe that could be, well, caused by global warming?
AlGore is demanding carbon offsets be paid to him for all the CO2 released during the fire.
Global warming and a lack of study grants obviously!
/ bad joke.
Lol. More likely the other way around.
The police are very insensitive to the environment. They are not Mother Earth’s friends. Call in Captain Planet.
So much for all the caterwauling last night about the lack of due process and the lack of proof of Dorner's guilt. The perp in the cabin shot and killed a deputy at the location. Lord knows how many more might have been killed if the siege had continued for hours.
I even saw one poster claim that there was no immenent threat to the LEOs in the siege. Maybe that poster can call up McKay's widow and get her opinion on the matter.
Anyone who thinks the LEO's should've 'waited him out', aren't.
