The nationwide manhunt for Liberal Democrat cop-killer, Christopher Dorner, ended in a shootout and a blazing cabin yesterday. Dorner met his fate in the mountains of San Bernardino County near Big Bear, California, not far from where his burnt-out pick-up truck was found last week. Hiding in a nearby cabin, Dorner was surprised when two women arrived to clean the residence. Although he tied them up, one escaped to notify police, causing Dorner to flee, car-jack another vehicle. But he was soon spotted and a moving shootout began as a car chase ensued until he crashed. Dorner then fled on foot to another cabin, where he again exchanged gunfire with authorities. Surrounded and isolated, Dorner apparently shot himself as the cabin began burning, possibly from teargas grenades. His charred body was recovered and awaits positive identification.
