Two Deputies Wounded In Hunt For Christopher Dorner
In breaking news, authorities say two deputies have been shot in the hunt for Christopher Dorner in the Big Bear Lake area outside of Los Angeles. INSIDE EDITION has the latest.
Christopher Dorner, the most wanted man in America, was allegedly involved in a last stand gun battle with police Tuesday.
Hundreds of rounds of gunfire could be heard on a dramatic live news report from the scene in mountains east of Los Angeles.
Two sheriffs deputies were wounded.
Reports said the 33-year-old rogue cop was cornered in the Big Bear ski area, close to the spot where his burned out pick-up truck was found last week.
The breaking news was carried live on the cable news networks.
Dorner reportedly staged a home invasion, tied up a couple inside and escaped in their white pick-up truck.
The gun battle erupted when fish and game wardens tried to stop his vehicle. He abandoned the truck and fled on foot to a nearby cabin where the gun battle ensued.
Earlier in the day, police revealed that Dorner may have an accomplice in the area.
According to a criminal complaint, U.S. Marshals have been "tracking the movements of a known associate of Dorner." He's indentified only by his initials, J.Y. The document says that a relative of J.Y. owns a home near Big Bear.
J.Y. Has not been identified, but in his manifesto Dorner mentions a man with those same initials who he calls, "a great friend, entrepreneur, husband and father." "You showed me the importance of fatherhood and friendship. Love you bro."
