An extensive search for fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner has finally appeared to be over.
A man believed to be Dorner was pinned down on Feb. 12 in a Southern California cabin. A shootout occurred, which led to a standoff before police lobbed in tear gas and the cabin caught fire.
By nightfall, a body was found inside. It is believed to be that of Dorner, but authorities say identifying the remains may take days.
A single gunshot heard earlier near the cabin wounded two sheriff’s deputies, one fatally, bringing the total number of people killed by Dorner to four.
Authorities believe Dorner’s wave of violence was retribution for having been fired by the LAPD in 2008 after making false statements. He said he wouldn’t stop killing until the LAPD publicly proclaimed his innocence and restored his reputation.
Last week, Dorner had fatally shot Monica Quan, 27, and her fiancé, Keith Lawrence in Irvine, Calif. Quan was the daughter of a former LAPD officer who Dorner claims messed up his termination appeal.
After failing to steal a boat, Dorner attacked more victims, this time police officers. He shot at LAPD officers protecting one of his targets, but was able to escape.
Just thirty minutes later, he ambushed two officers at an intersection, killing one of them and sending the other to the hospital.
