The search for Christopher Dorner the alleged cop killer and murderer of 4 people in Southern California took a dramatic turn yesterday afternoon.
First, we heard accounts that Dorner had taken two hostages and was holed up in a cabin in San Bernardino. After he fled the cabin, the two hostages (believed to be maids) called police and told them they had been victims of a multi-day hostage taking.
They also told police that a man matching Dorner’s description had escaped in a pink car. Later in the afternoon, Dorner shot two law enforcement officials, killing one and seriously injuring another. It is not known when and how but Dorner is believed to have carjacked a white vehicle as well.
The man believed to be Dorner would then take off into the forest and holed up in another cabin. Law enforcement that was on his trail would end up surrounding the cabin and shooting tear gas into it. The man in the cabin would get into a gun fight and would be prevented from leaving the cabin.
Law enforcement says that a body has been found and removed from the cabin. It is believed to be Dorner but forensic tests need to be conducted to prove that claim.
It seems that the terror being faced by many in the region is now over. The carnage has stopped and that’s a very good thing.
