The manhunt for rogue cop Christopher Dorner appears to be coming to a dramatic end. Dorner is holed up in a cabin in Big Bear, exchanging gunfire with law enforcement. Multiple outlets say that Fish and Game wardens spotted Dorner in a vehicle, tried to stop him, and Dorner opened fire before fleeing on foot. The Los Angeles Times says Dorner broke into a home, tied up a couple, and stole their car. Two deputies have reportedly been shot and airlifted to safety, no word on how seriously. Dorner promised to wage "asymmetrical warfare" on the LAPD in revenge for his 2009 firing and is wanted for three murders.
