Smoke rises a fire at the cabin where accused triple murderer Christopher Dorner is believed to be holed up in mountains above Los Angeles, February 13, 2013.
Four people have died as the result of fired 33-year-old Christopher Jordan Dorner’s alleged killing spree. Tuesday afternoon, Dorner was holed up in a burning cabin in the woods near Big Bear Lake.
Fugitive ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner, whose alleged murder spree began with the shooting death of the daughter of a police union lawyer who defended him in an internal investigation, re-surfaced Tuesday in a stolen white pickup truck in the San Bernardino Mountains.
“Enough is enough. It’s time for you to turn yourself in. It’s time to stop the bloodshed,” LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith said earlier in the day at a news conference held outside police headquarters in Los Angeles.
He said he would get even with those who wronged him as part of his plan to reclaim his good name. “You’re going to see what a whistleblower can do when you take everything from him especially his name.” the rant said. “You have awoken a sleeping giant.”
The cabin continued to burn more than 90 minutes after the fire started, but sources familiar with the operation said the fire department would arrive at the site once the road was cleared.
As the manhunt appeared to reach a crisis point - with two law enforcement officers dead and flames leaping from a cabin where Dorner had holed up in the woods - we take a look at the numbers in the case so far.
11: Days that have passed since the manhunt for Dorner began, starting with a shooting of Monica Quan and Keith Lawrence in Irvine on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 2, and ending Tuesday, as he was barricaded in a cabin in the mountains.
