UPDATE: Two deputies injured in shootout with suspect believed to be ex-LA cop
LOS ANGELES (AP, CNN) - A person believed to be the fugitive ex-Los Angeles cop sought in three killings exchanged gunfire with authorities in the San Bernardino Mountains on Tuesday, a law enforcement official said on condition of anonymity.
Two sheriff's deputies were wounded in the shootout with a suspect believed to be renegade ex-Los
Angeles police officer Christopher Jordan Dorner, a high-ranking law
official with knowledge of the investigation said Tuesday.
Dorner had stolen a
vehicle from a house in the Big Bear area when he came upon a police
roadblock, the source said. Dorner opened fire on the deputies and later
was pinned down, the source said.
Dorner is accused of
killing one police officer and wounding two others, as well as killing
the daughter of his police union representative and her fiancé.
The area is in the Big Bear region where a search for Dorner has been under way since his pickup truck was found there Thursday.
San Bernardino County sheriff's spokesperson Jodi Miller said a stolen vehicle report from a residence was received at 12:20 p.m.
"The reporting party identified the suspect as looking like Christopher Dorner but that has not been confirmed," Miller said.
